Cape Verdian Shorelines

During a 22 hour stopover on the island of Sal (between our visits on San Antao and Sao Nicolau) we decided to go on an early morning stroll along the beach. It was interesting to see that, as soon as we had passed the tourist hotels, suddenly there were some birds along the shoreline. Mostly Sanderlings (Drieteenstrandlopers) and we found one Whimbrel (Regenwulp) as well. What did we see more ? Some sun bathing people, and a lonely fisherman.. And lots of sun, sand and sea! Dominique made a ‘making of’ picture, where you can see both me and the Sanderling in the picture 😉

    Hallo Hans,

    Wat een heerlijke foto’s weer uit het zonovergoten Kaap Verdië. Wat gaaf dat je gewoon de Strandlopers daar ook kan fotograferen. Moet heel verschil zijn met hier waar je nooit de enige bent om zulke vogels vast te leggen. De making of… is ook leuk…ik verlang dan alleen maar naar warmte en zon 😉

    Gr,

    Remco
