Hi all!

I was pleasantly surprised at the excellent bird life at this small nature reserve smack-bang in the middle of Pretoria.

I saw an adult Lizard Buzzard there last week, a lifer for me.

Does anyone else have sightings or comments regarding Faerie Glen Nature Reserve?

Hi Hanno,

Sounds like a good reserve, one of those jewels that is hidden away.

Personally I have never been there but see reports on the various bird nets from people that have seen things there.

If you would like let me have more details and I can include it in our venues section.

Cheers,
Gordon

For those interested, [url:3touyj32]http://www.birding.co.za/pbc/faerie.htm[/url:3touyj32] will give accurate information to anyone who wants to experience Faerie Glen Nature Reserve, especially those birders who live in GAUTENG.

Footonte: I went birdng there yesterday and saw a large nest, however, there were no birds to be seen in it - instead there were to Bushbabies sitting, frozenly still

Yesterday I added another lifer: the superbly animated yellow-fronted tinkerbird. It was sitting a metre away from me amongst mistletoe! Another testimony to the birds that this gem-reserve has on offer...
