Description: Very skittish. Took about 3 visits before I could locate the nest. If I was visible from the nest the birds did not enter the nest. Tried to photograph them leaving, but they did so at speed, without a pause to check.

Description: Nesting in the roof of the guest house on the top of Blouberg Hill. If you want to stay overnight, contact City Conservation: it is magic - although you cannot get away from the rumble of the city the views of Robben Island and Table Mountain are to die for.
