Op De Zeekoe gasteplaas, 7 km buite Oudtshoorn, word daar gespog met 168 voëlspesies. Ons is bevoorreg om byna elke dag die visarendpaar te hoor en te sien. Dit is wonderlik om soggens wakker te skrik met voël en ander dier- geluide en te luister na hul natuurlike musiek. Hoe bevoorreg en geseend is ons nie? Matheus 6:"Kyk na die wilde voëls: Hulle saai nie en hulle oes nie en hulle maak nie in skure bymekaar nie; julle Hemelse Vader sorg vir hulle."

In Southern Africa it is fairly common to come across a Burhinus Capensis (Spotted thick-knee, Spotted dikkop). Yesterday I saw a group of 10 nestling around looking for food; these birds mainly eats insects, doing most of its foraging in a plover-like manner, repeatedly running forward, stopping then jabbing prey with its bill. Usually they are quiet during the daytime, but tend to get noisy after sundown as this is the time when they are most active. The spotted dikkop are usually monogamous (have only one mate) and outside the mating season, they tend to be quite mellow. However, males can...

If you think of the small community of De Rust and how these woman stood together - on deciding to start the well known Meiringspoort half marathon, in 1993( 21 years ago), we can be proud to call ourselves = women.I can just imagine them running and talking having the "brainchild" of the marathon, born among them.
