All around the world nature is bouncing back as humans are forced to stay indoors due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Western Cape is no exception as a huge number of birds flocked to Langebaan while locals stayed inside.

A video shared to Facebook by a resident from Paradise Beach in Langebaan. In the video thousands of birds can be seen descending onto the beach in huge numbers like never before.

The man filming the video explains how he has never seen something like this in Langebaan ever before, comparing it to the sardine run.

He goes on to explain how ever since the lockdown the birds have been enjoying having the beach to themselves and even the dolphins have been frolicking in the nearby bay.

“Western Cape Now, nature is loving the lockdown for humans” says the caption of the video.
