Zuid Afrika 19 november t/m 1 december 2006


Van 19 november t/m 1 december 2006 heb ik samen met Hemme Batjes een rondreis gemaakt door Zuid-Afrika. Het startpunt was Kaapstad, vervolgens langs de westkust in noordelijke richting tot aan Lambertsbay, daar het binnenland in naar Brandvlei. Toen in zuidelijke richting via Calvinia, Tankwa Karoo National Park richting National Reserve De Hoop. Daar vandaan weer richting Kaapstad. Het laatste deel van de vakantie hebben we doorgebracht op het schiereiland zuidelijk van Kaapstad. Een hoogtepunt was ongetwijfeld de pealartic tocht vanuit Simonstown de volle zee op. Hierbij o.a. honderden witkopalbatrossen gezien en natuurlijk ook andere interessante zeevogels. 

 
Cape Town Pelagics trip report for 28 November 2006
By Ross Wanless
Highlights

2 GREAT-WINGED PETRELS

1 LONG-TAILED SKUA

A Cape Town Pelagics trip left Simon's Town on Tuesday 28 November, with Dave Christie skippering Obsession, and guided by Ross Wanless.

We were very lucky with the weather, with no weekend trips going for the whole month.  We got to the point in good time, but there was quite a bit of wind at the surface and there was precious little activity – a few terns and gannets, but no feeding and no skuas in evidence.  As we moved into deeper waters, conditions ameliorated and we had the makings of a cracking day on the open seas. Dave picked up a trawler early on, and we arrived in time to enjoy the

carnival of birds that were scavenging behind the boat. A second trawler was spotted a few miles further, so when the activity died down, we headed over to it. This time we spend a good hour in the wake of the boat, soaking up the spectacle.  After about a half hour, the first GREAT-WINGED PETREL came past. Although not everyone got on to it as it got lost in the crowd, a second bird arrived from the opposite side a minute later, and everyone was able to enjoy the views. We found all the regular species, with the exception of Northern Giant-Petrels. Despite seeing in excess of 20 Southern GPs, not one positive ID came up with the Northern. Surprisingly, there were only 3 Storm-Petrels, all Wilson's. It was good to have a handful of Great Shearwaters knocking about again. A brief but enjoyable highlight was a single LONG-TAILED SKUA. We stopped off at two longliners on the way home, but they had fewer birds and species

behind them, so we didn't linger more than a half hour. There were two surprises inside the bay on the way home. First we got onto an Arctic Skua, the only one of the trip. Second was the revival of the Bank Cormorant colony at Partridge Point, where at least four Bank Cormorant nests were visible amongst the White-breasted Cormorants, which had usurped the nests of the Banks over the past few months.

Birds seen and approximate numbers:
Shy albatross  800
Black-browed albatross  200
Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross  1
Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross  5
Juv. Yellow-nosed Albatross  5
Southern Giant-Petrel  20
White-chinned Petrel  750
Great-winged Petrel  2
Sooty Shearwater  50
Great Shearwater  10
Wilson's Storm-Petrel  3
SubAntarctic Skua  5
Arctic Skua  1
Long-tailed Skua  1
Sabine's Gull  5
Artic Tern  50
 
Coastal species included:
African Penguin
Cape Gannet
Kelp Gull
Hartlaub's Gull
Swift Tern
Sandwich Tern
Common Tern
White breasted Cormorant
Bank Cormorant
Cape Cormorant 

Thanks to Dave Christie for finding the trawlers.
