A small detour to the superbly named small rocky pass of Skitterykloof failed to turn up Cinnamon-breasted Warbler but did add several Cape Weavers, Mountain Wheatear, 4 Common Waxbills, Levaillant's Cisticola, Malachite Sunbird, White-throated Canary, White-necked Ravens and the ubiquitous Karoo Prinias.
One last stop just before the gravel roads turned back to tarmac yielded a nice Layard's Warbler on a rocky slope and a little further on towards Ceres a magnificent Martial Eagle glided high over.
On the long drive west to the coast we had 3 Black-shouldered Kites, Grey-winged Francolin, several African Swifts, 2 Blue Cranes, 1 Black-headed Heron, 4 Spur-winged Geese, Blacksmith Plover, Cattle Egrets, Rock Kestrel, Common Fiscals, Red-winged Starlings and African Pied Starlings before we pulled into a grey, windy and rainy Yzerfontein, our home for the next 2 nights. We braved the conditions for a walk along the seafront and around a rock headland in front of our digs. African Black Oystercatchers, Crowned Cormorants, White-breasted Cormorant, Cape Wagtail, Red-eyed Dove, Speckled Pigeon, Laughing Dove, Cape Robin-chat, Hartlaub's Gulls, Kelp Gulls and Common Starlings were our reward.
That night we drove out in monsoon conditions to a strange restaurant (the Kaijaiki Country Inn) that was more like a museum!
