This gem of a reserve accessible from Beacon Bay provided an avifaunal and mammal treat this past weekend. The warm winter weather (hot in fact, around 27 C) had lots of birds and at least 7 individual blue duiker drink at the water fountain in the reserve.
The museum is working with Buffalo City Metro Municipality to have the reserve extended and the additional portions proclaimed a provincial reserve. A meeting with officials was held last week to discuss this. The Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism Agency will be assisting in the process.
