Ruff also struggling with sticky mud at Strandfontein

Further to Otto Schmidt’s note on Friday about the immature Cape Gannet that was stuck in the mud at Strandfontein, he sent me some additional photos of a Ruff that was struggling with the same issue. Here is Otto’s photo and note below:

Stuck in the mud by Otto Schmidt

Further to my comments about the feeding waders along the same stretch of P2, I’m attaching a (not overly good) picture of a couple of feeding Ruff taken this Monday afternoon. You can see how they, particularly the front right-hand one, are battling with the sticky mud.

Thanks Otto.
