Bird Sanctuary

BirdBluff Nature Reserve was proclaimed in 1961, making it Durban’s oldest bird sanctuary. It is situated in Tara Road in the Bluff area near to the Engen oil refinery. The original extensive wetland area was split in two by the construction of Tara Road , with the majority of the vlei being to the east of the road. The water level in the vlei fluctuates with weather conditions and occasionally the vlei dries up, most recently in the second half of 2005. The vlei is also occasionally invaded by alien vegetation, and these factors are a cause of great changes in both the number and variety of waterfowl present. The reed beds potentially provide extensive roosting and breeding areas for several species of herons and egrets, as well as African Spoonbills and several crakes and rails. However, in the last few years breeding activity appears to have been mainly restricted to the likes of Egyptian & Spur-winged Geese, swamphens and coots.
