Lock-down Birding, Bugs & Things

Covid-19 Lock-down in South Africa started on 27 March 2020 and was initially scheduled for 3 weeks. I had already been working from home for a week at that stage and had been enjoying the birds and things in and around my complex.

At the end of Lock-down week 2 our President announced that lock-down would be extended by 2 weeks until 30 April 2020. And by the end of week 4 a further announcement advised that there would be 5 levels of lock-down, and that we would be moving from level 5 to level 4 from 1 May. As the Covid-19 infections started to drop, we eventually moved to Level 1.

But all of a sudden the second wave of infections hit in December 2020, and at a rate of daily infections much higher than before. And just after Christmas we moved back to modified Level 3 Lock-down conditions.
