Off topic ... Was there still red tape across the bottom of Silvermine Lower when you were there? Thanks

Yup, on a route between chicks dig it lank and flakes. Can't remember which one.

Know why?

Tape is still on at least 6 of the routes. I recommend staying off them unless you enjoy being attacked by Starlings that are busy breeding. I was dive bombed on Fools Garden this afternoon and that wasn't even a taped route.

There is a red-wing starling pair at Boothill, Kloof gorge that nests half way up Liquid Desire.
Obnoxious little buggers attack me every year for a month or so. Wearing a helmet prevents them drawing blood from your scalp. Don't look up or they'll take out your eyes.
Its their home tho', so give them space.
C ya,
