Sardine Run, South Africa
The sardine run occurs off the east coast of South Africa during the winter months of June and July, when huge shoals of sagax sardinops sardines move northwards towards the warmer waters of Durban in what is believed to be a spawning migration. Following them are thousands of predators, including shark, dolphins, gannets and bryde’s whales, all intent on taking advantage of the concentration of food. These images, which document the filming efforts of a BBC Natural History Unit team, were shot over three years between 2007 and 2009.
On the island of Malgas off the west coast of South Africa, cape gannet chicks have sixty days from the time they hatch to learn how to fly and to hunt for themselves. These images, shoot over a three week period in January 2007, document the critical three weeks leading up to their first attempts at flight,many of which end in death through attacks by fur seals or through drowning in the surf.
