Birds and more

Everyday when I wake up I can hear the Cape robin's beautiful song.  Many times the black oystercatchers add to the chorus, and the white eyes are chirping away always.  But yesterday I looked out of the window and saw a raptor flying past, which is quite unusual.  When I looked through the binoculars I saw that it was a Peregrine falcon - what an amazing sighting!  Never in all these years had this bird visited us although we know that it lives on Table Mountain.
On top of that when we went for our usual evening walk we saw the resident Egyptian goose taking her five little goslings into the tidal pool for a swim.  And the hadedas were grazing on the main beach promenade, completely oblivious to all the activities around them.
And then, a bird of a different feather, a young man who told us he was a dancer and uses the beach to practice - just watch the video!
