OUTING – Mouille Point and the Granger Bay Coastline. Leader: Mel Tripp.
January 17 @ 7:00 am - 11:00 am
Meet at 07h00 at Greenpoint (aka Mouille Point) Lighthouse. This venue was recommended by Ian Sinclair. The rocky and sandy shoreline that stretches all the way from the Waterfront to Sea Point supports numbers of African Black Oystercatcher, Cape and Crowned Cormorants and Swift and Common Terns. Ian reports having seen huge number of Hartlaub’s Gulls and even Sabine Gulls and a few skuas in their midst near a sewage outlet 2-3 km off Mouille Point . You may even get to see a Heavisides dolphin! Scopes are a necessity and it would be appreciated that, if you have a scope, you
take it along to this outing.
Directions: On the Western Boulevard (M6) follow the signs towards Sea Point. Go past the stadium and the gym. At the traffic lights at the beachfront turn right into Beach Road. Just around the corner you will see the red and white candy-striped lighthouse. The parking area is nearby and we will meet there. Alternatively you can drive along Beach Road from the Waterfront and approach the lighthouse from the other side.
