Jay : A morning in WCNP 20/2/06

Unread postby Jay » Tue Feb 21, 2006 7:49 pm

Just a few pics after a quick morning into the West Coast National Park.



Image

a white backed mousebird, just look at its gorgeous red feet!

Image

there were stacks of ostriches, far more than usual, with many young ones and very soggy feathers.

Image

it was a grey day, but silver, not gloomy :wink: this is the view over the Langebaan lagoon.

Image

another view further along the lagoon.

Image

a Southern Black-bellied korhaan, just outside the gate, it was "kraaking" at me all the time, but not scared at all.

Image

and the korhaan peeking at us.

there were also many, many tortoises along the roads, there little 'tails' in the air as they bent over to drink water off the tar.
The only downside of the day, was that 2 tortoises were driven over by speeding cars :(
But, I will rather keep the image of a silver day, chirping birds and raptors that were extremely camera shy!
