Sardine Run off the coasts of Mbotyi River, heart of rural South Africa: a group of common dolphins trap a small shoal of sardine in a net of bubble, before launching the assault Each year from May to July, millions of sardines migrate along South Africa’s eastern coastline going north, following cold winter currents toward the warm Indian. As they move, they attract thousands of marine predators – dolphins, sharks, seals and game fish, orcas, whales – all taking part in the feeding frenzy. When the the shoals are moved to the surface, they also fall prey to dive bombing avian predators.
