Flamingos and Spoonbills wade through the salty water. Breeding colonies of the threatened Damara and Caspian terns gather at the beach and even the rare black African oystercatchers cross our path.

Blue cranes (South Africa’s national bird), another endangered species, like to breed at this magical place, but the nest with eggs we crossed at the beach was from some seagulls. They tried to distract us from their precious offspring.
