Glen Austin Bird Sanctuary, Midrand Reviews
Serene and beautiful during the summer months. The whole place is full of a variety of bird species, lovely to walk around and just look and listen. Less bird life in the winter months and the water level does.drop considerably. The west side of the dam is used as a pathway for many people to and from Tembisa, so there is unfortunately quote a bit of litter spoling this beautiful place. Nonetheless it is still spectacular.
Tranquil, nice breeze on the day.
So close to home and so precious
Nature at it's best
Also has bull frogs
