Saltmine Conservation Area Clovelley (Fish Hoek) (1 Viewer)


I need to retire! ....oh I have!
United Kingdom
Went for a brief walk around the conservation area this afternoon.
Quite quiet, but saw;
Red Wing Starling, Speckled Pigeon, Cape Weaver, Cape Bulbul, Southern Double Collared Sunbird, Karoo Prinia, Cape Sparrow, Lesser Striped Swallow, Yellow Billed Duck, Fiscal Flycatcher and African Turtle Dove.

Also about around Fish Hoek and Glencairn,
Kelp Gull, Hatlaubs Gull, Cape Cormorant, African Harrier Hawk, Cape Wagtail

Not too shabby!

Are you sure it was Lesser Striped and not Greater Striped Swallow? Lesser Striped generally doesn't occur further East than George, let alone the greater Cape Town area, while Greater Striped is a fairly common summer visitor.
