Natal Spurfowl – Nicolette Forbes

Tanglewood Nature Reserve is a forest and grassland habitat reserve nestled beneath the towering cliffs of Kloof and sandwiched between the industrial areas of Westmead.  A declared Natural Heritage and a haven humans and animals, a walk here never fails to yield something special.  

The morning started off very misty which allowed for excellent birding the varied habitat with its pristine forest.  Lemon Dove was seen here which created much excitement.
