Last weekend we visited the Nature Reserve at the mouth of the Umgeni River in Durban, where there is a boardwalk of about 1 Kilometer taking one through the mangrove forest, with interesting little creeks and lots of bird life. We saw a lovely osprey, but I missed a pic. Visible to the right, above, is the arch and part of the top of the new Soccer Stadium. The mangroves themselves are interesting – ones we saw are named black, white and red – and they provide food for a lot of wildlife including crabs of various sizes and also whelks. It is interesting to see the shells of the latter perched up on stems or branches.
I have been striving to post on this site for nearly a week and all that took place was that the screen went blank followed by lots of nothing. Now I have done what I did before, but at last it seems to be taking. Can anyone enlighten me as to what was going on when all that nothing was going on?
