Marievale Bird Sanctuary is a protected area on the Blesbokspruit, located near the East Rand town of Nigel in Gauteng, South Africa. The Blesbokspruit is a major perennial river, which is flanked by extensive floodplains on either side that are just fantastic for water birds with around 300 bird species that can be found in the wetland. It is one of my favourite places to go on a weekend, and it is best to be there as the sun comes up. Here are a few of my photos from Marievale for todays lazy post.
