The “Cape of Storms” really lived up to its name this time.
Mother Goose’s second batch of five eggs was washed away.
At home our Masked Weaver “Boytjie” lost his nest containing two chicks.
I tied Boytjie’s second nest down, using nylon cord.
During the storm the poor nest did a somersault but remains hanging (a bit tighter around the branch)
We are not sure if the young birds survived.
Among the birds spotted at the vlei were 2 Caspian Terns.
