Birds and flowers in the Table Bay Nature Reserve

I took some time out mid-week for my own photography.

A brisk hike in excellent weather took me around the Table Bay Nature Reserve, Woodbridge Island for a few bird and flower captures.

Quite surprisingly I noticed my first Great crested grebe in the Diep River on route to the reserve.

A few birds flying and perched down the Diep River and a few wild flowers around the  Table Bay Nature Reserve.
