This is a treat for the senses whether you are a birder/twitcher or not. The number of birds in the reserve in the migration seasons must be in the tens of thousands. Many are residents all year round, but the painted storks and pelicans are the main attractions. They are close enough for their size to be experienced but out in their own water and trees ensuring appropriate separation from human interference. The on-going maintenance of the site means it is easy to move around and the several observation points make photography a joy. Our favourite is the Snake or Dart bird with its genetic ability to literally dart at the fish it eats. Its elegant stretching and preening is a sight to see. Only downside is the playing of loud pop music. While being hypnotised by the birds and bats across the water, take time to glance behind at the farmland where many smaller birds can be spotted. There are many helpful information signs on site as well as toilets and refreshments immediately outside as well as somewhere to hire binoculars if you have forgotten your own.
