This remarkable set of pictures was taken by Harbour View of two ostriches being herded out of the sea at Yzerfontein:
Skipper and boat owner Johan Basson came upon these 2 “swimmers” on Wednesday (25th) afternoon. He “herded” them into the harbour where they eventually ended their swim at the slipway.
It is unclear where they “launched.”
Yzerfontein is privileged to have a number of these feathered residents and it is suspected that they were practicing for the Olympics. It is not the first time these feathered athletes have been seen in the Atlantic.
(Note: NSRI was not involved in this incident.)
