I am currently on the KwaZulu Natal South Coast, where the annual sardine run started on Saturday. In the wake of the huge shoals of silvery-black sardines come whales and dolphins, and large flocks of sea birds that make for some spectacular viewing. Somewhat more amuzing, though, is the sight of little groups of frantic fishermen mirroring the birds and bigger fish in their attempts to capture more fish than they can eat. Quite a sight for a Monday morning!
