Little birdie made front page News in our local Newspaper .. and then a nice article on page two too... such a pleasant change from all the Doom and gloom that they usually manage to dredge up . Obviously little birdie is on one of those organised tours and only stays a day or two at each place.

90 minutes ago, a/the black skimmer was reported seen by the same person who saw the first sighting, near Woodbridge Island, Milnerton, heading for Rietvlei.

Evidently life in Walvis et al is not as good as the Cape. :whistle:

If it is found again, I suggest you go look at it. It is one helluva bird to see.

To all upcountry birders.

Don't down tools and head for the coast just yet. It has not been seen again since early this morning.
