Snowy Cederberg

During the three years I have been here this is the first time I have seen snow down to this level. Vegetation is bent over supporting the weight of the snow. Slush and ice flew up from the road as I left Driehoek this morning.
I went to visit one of the few chicks which I know of in the Cederberg this year. On arrival I saw the nest  which was covered in a white blanket! Within minutes the snow started to fall again and I lost the visibility of the nest. 
I saw the chick here yesterday, it is quite developed now and having already survived winter downpours, I hope we’ll see him/her again tomorrow! One of the adult eagles perched in a tree on the skyline.
