4th June a pod of Bryde's whales entertained Rooiels the whole day and a few of them the next day too. They were actively fishing - mostly around Container bay - perhaps brought in by some fish chasing the red tide which has meant limited mussel collecting for humans (and cats) for weeks now.
We have had a number of new baby baboons this year and it is delightful to see how the troop care for each other and how the fathers enjoy and protect their young.
A glimpse of dolphins passing and a photo of a shark breaching off the nature reserve - taken some years back in February. Below a photo of the Rooiels river in flood on 16th May - thanks Riel.
