Running the Bushveld Birdclub in Hoedspruit with Glenda and Tony Sparkes have been a a lot of fun with monthly outings to incredible birding sites around town. Hoedspruit is ideally situated between the Kruger National Park and the Blyde River Canyon, both World Heritage sites but also well-known hosts to 500+ bird species in close proximity to the town.

Here the club members are visiting the Sweni Bird hide in Kruger Park with good sightings of Giant Heron, White-face Whistling Ducks, Black Crake, African Jacana, Pied Wagtails and Saddle-billed Stork just to name a few.
