Birds of Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve Western Cape South Africa February 2020

 A very blustery day. We started in light drizzle in a howling southeasterly but the rain soon stopped. It remained very cloudy throughout the day but brightened up by the time we got back!. We started at Rooi-els (looking for Cape Rock Jumpers – heard but not seen). Moved on to Stony Point for the Penguin colony and then visited  Harold Porter National Botanical Garden. We stopped at a wetlands at Somerset West on the return journey but the water was very low and all the birds too far away.
