After venturing out to the far east to fetch a friend in Benoni, I thought it a good idea to stop by the nearby Bullfrog pan in Benoni Small Farms.

My first time there, and what a stunning little venue! It was brimming full of water, and we got most of the ducks, including two ducks I have not seen for a while, fulvous duck and tons of Mocca duck!

Also picked up greater flamingo.

For good access, drive down Benoni Road, and then down to the end of Evans.

We then went later on to Marievale, for some deep water, mud splashing, wheel spinning, and very dull birding. Three Goliath herons, a marsh harrier, and a Juvenile African Rail almost cheered us up!

If you are looking for waders, a trip to Glen Austen Bird sanctuary is very rewarding at the moment after all this rain.
