*Barn Swallows* Mount Moreland, KZN

A few off ramps up from Ballito (back towards Durban on the N2) is a wonderful place to watch the over 3 million barn swallows settle down for the evening. The reedbed roost site the Barn Swallows have chosen is a wetland, locally known as the Lake Victoria Wetland, it is covered with indigenous Phragmitiesreeds. The Barn Swallows at Mount Moreland and their roosting habitat are now recognized as a world famous Barn Swallow site and IBA (International Birding Area). Now doesn't that sound impressive. 
Not sure where the swallows were yesterday, because we were only graced with the presence of a few stragglers. So no pictures of a blackened sky, but instead a few cheesey pic's. Enjoy!

Our friends Carmen & Abrie joined us for the weekend, as well as Farmboy looking handsome.
A very sweet little begger, with the most incredible eyes.
