Sally and I visited Crysalis Farm last Wednesday and Thursday. It is located between Glenngary and Highmoor, Kanberg.
Our visit was primarily to visit family. However we did do a bit of birding on their 27 hectare property. Checking out one of their dams we had great sightings of an African Snipe.
We also took a drive up to the entrance to Highmoor. Here are some of the other birds and beasts we managed to photograph on a cloudy and cold cold day.
There were of course the usual mystery birds. In particular a very pale almost white looking Flycatcher/Chat.
And a smaller Cisticola sized bird.

The Franklin’s Gull was showing well at Bayhead. It is quite possible to get very close.
Walk to the beach and scan the mud flats just after low tide. We found him turning right at the beach and going to the first corner.
Check the red eyering.
Advice: approach Bay Head from the Bluff as Bay Head road is chaos with trucks parked in both lanes.
