Carin and I arrived early in the afternoon to a scorching Rooisand. Using my scope, I scanned into the distance for waders and only saw heat-hazed white blobs.
The two Johans (Olivier and van der Westhuizen), Gary Baumgarten and I spent a few hours enjoyable birding at Rooisand yesterday afternoon.

The Rooisand Nature Reserve forms part of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve and managed by CapeNature. It is generally accepted that Rooisand is the best spot along the Cape Whale Coast to look for waders.
