Along the boardwalk, down by the sea

03 January 2024 - Hermanus; Day 13

The wind scuppered our plans to visit Gaansbaai, so instead we opted for a walk along the boardwalk from Kwaaiwater together with Guy and Sonja. It is an awesome walk with many others and their dogs choosing to do the same.

I lagged behind every now and then to grab a few images of the few species I saw, like these Common Tern

Some passing Kelp Gull's

Kelp Gull (Larus dominicanus)


and of course the more prolific Hartlaub's Gull

Hartlaub's Gull (Chroicocephalus hartlaubii)




We stopped for coffee at one of the stalls off the boardwalk and had a White-necked Raven drop in

It was then a slow walk back to our cars with our takeaway coffee's, where again I stopped to enjoy a small party of Greater Striped Swallow's collecting mud from a small pool next to the boardwalk

Later in the afternoon, we drove back to Cape Town to pick up Jaden and Jack and then enjoyed a late afternoon drink with our good friends Eric and Kari at the Table Bay Hotel in the V&A Waterfront before heading back to Hermanus
