A pleasant couple of hours birding this afternoon between Gansbaai and the Uilenkraal lagoon proved quite productive. I went to Gansbaai hoping to see the Elegant Tern that was reported there about a week ago. After quite a search, I gave up and headed back towards my car. Then I decided to have one more look, and there it was!! I was overjoyed.
The rest of the afternoon produced Common Ringed Plovers, Grey Plovers, Little Stints, White-fronted Plovers. Ruddy Turnstones, Common Whimbrels, Common Sandpipers and all the usual suspects! I was able to add quite a few species to my Challenge list.
