I paid a quick visit to Leeupan in Brakpan on Sunday. There are many flamingos present currently, both Lesser and Greater. The entrance to the pan is still non-official and a high ground clearance vehicle is necessary. The safety is still suspect, but common sense and general awareness will prevail. <!-- s:wink: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=":wink:" title="Wink" /><!-- s:wink: -->

The last time I called in at Leeupan was when the Asiatic Dowitcher pitched up there in November 2004!!!!!
