Birding

Blue Crane Family
Greystone Lodge is a registered Birder Friendly Establishment with BirdLife South Africa

Terence and Ildikó are passionate about Birds.  We love Wildlife, Birds in particular. 

A few of our birding highlights include:
  1. A family of  Blue Cranes breed on our property, seen above.  The little one, pictured above between the parents, was born in December 2019. The youngster successfully made it to adulthood!  We have since spotted them on our property ever since.
  2. Red-chested Flufftail, lives and breeds in our small Wetland to the left of our dam.
  3. Secretary Birds regularly wander across the fields.
  4. European Roller and Lilac-breasted Roller spotted at the Lodge in 2016 and 2017.
  5. Bronze-winged Courser seen near the gate in February 2021.
  6. White-bellied Korhaan often heard and seen above the property in the open fields.
  7. Black Sparrow-hawk nests in the forest near the Lodge.
  8. We often see and hear Spotted Eagle Owl.
  9. We assist the Dullstroom Bird of Prey & Rehabilitation Centre with soft & hard releases of Birds and Wildlife.
