African Rock Pipit

Black Headed Oriole

Long Tailed Widow Bird

Grey winged Spurfowl
This tiny town, on the border of Mpumalanga and KwaZulu Natal is home to the offices of Birdlife South Africa and the abundance of birdlife in the area is an attraction for twitchers from all over the world.  The town, quaint in the extreme is two streets, but has one of the best restaurants we have ever been to - the Bistro.  Seats about 20 people and has quite an extensive menu.  Delicious!  Early morning saw us with our local birding guide travelling about 50 kms around the town and learning a lot of new species.  In the afternoon we sat in one of the many bird hide overlooking the wetlands watching the springtime activity.  Lovely lovely place.  September 2011.
