Hi all.

Gordon and I spent a very cold saturday morning at Marievale and stopped in at Birchleigh pan. Nothing wildly exciting to report but the photo opportunities were quite welcome....

Where is Birchleigh pan exactly? I stay in Kempton Park and would like to go and have a look sometime. The Bonaeropark pans I know quite well but haven't been Birchleigh side yet.

Hi Johann,

The pan is just off Modderfontein Road (R25), the nearest cross road is Mooirivier Drive (M84). Parking is a bit of a problem. I find the best is to pull off the road just before you get to Mooirivier Drive, where the crash barrier ends. There is a track you can either drive or walk down to get nearer to the waters edge.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Gordon
