    Notes After the devastating floods on 24th Sept in the Overberg, a huge new sand island was formed in front of the hotel (sand deposit). Very little birds, esp waders as the feeding grounds is now just sand and in other places its just bed rock. Lots of peat, wood and tree trunks on the shoreline - this should in time decompose and repair the lost feeding grounds.
