Hi - can anyone tell us about the rows of angled posts in a wetland not far to the west of Agulhas? It looks as thought it could be a wonderful birding site when it's flooded in winter, but what on earth are those posts all about?

We'll be most interested to learn more -

Lastly, how do I include a pic directly in the text of a post? Can it only be a pic that has already been posted elsewhere on the web?

Many thanks

OK, Our curiosity has been satisfied. Have just had a most helpful reply from Tertius Carinus, ABI Project coordinator - it read in part

"As you would see from the name, (Soutpan) it used to be a salt works where they scraped some salt and those poles were part of the process." Fascinating.

Thanks Tertius.
