Another glorious morning along the Diep River, Table Bay Nature Reserve, Woodbridge Island . This morning I was greeted by the black-headed heron, the Cape spurfowls, quite a few grey herons, yellow-billed ducks, Egyptian geese and an African spoonbill or two.

A Cape bulbul poked his head out from the reeds and I had an opportunity to see the Cape teal ducks and yellow-billed ducks frolicking in the early morning sun.

Birds of the morning:
  • Afican spoonbill
  • Little egret in flight
  • Cape teal duck in flight
  • African sacred ibis
  • Pied crow
  • Perched Cape bulbul
