Photographs on Sunday

25 Feb

On Sunday morning I grabbed my camera kit and headed out to the Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary.

It is only 15kms from where I live but I dont get to go there as often as I would like to. The weather was constantly changing between sunlight and overcast which played havoc with my settings. There were quite a few people in the hide by the time I arrived. One lady who was visiting from Holland told me that she was very involved in setting up the sanctuary way back in the early 70’s.

Will upload more pictures later in the day

      Austin Roberts is in Pretoria. (Go up George Storrar drive towards Brooklyn if you come from the Fountains side and it will be on the left hand side of the road.)

        There by the some or other club?
        I drive there relatively often, but have never seen a place called Austin Roberts!
