Flight of the Egrets

The cattle egrets do a daily migration from the vleis to areas around and west of George. As the day gets lighter they fly from the vleis along the Touw River in multiple flocks each consisting of 10's or 100's of birds. This continues for upto 10 minutes with a few strays coming through later. They return at sunset along a very similar route. The video clip covers just a part of this daily event. To see them live one of the best places is the boardwalk alongside Waterside Rd. Get there at least 15 minutes before sunrise when it is moderately light.
