  The Bluff
by MikeAtSea

Bluff Nature Reserve was proclaimed on the 24 October 1974 and is 45 ha in extent.
The reserve, consists of a large pan and adjacent forest and is situated in the Bluff suburb of Durban.
The pan is a home and a refuge for many water birds and waders.
Two bird hides are sited along the edge of the pan and provide excellent bird viewing opportunities for visitors.
Spoonbills and cormorants nest in the edges of the reedbeds in late winter and spring.
There is one self guided trail in the reserve which meanders around the pan and offers a wonderful opportunity to explore the diverse water-bird life in the reserve.
A complete bird list is available from the field ranger.
The following mammals have been recorded in the reserve. Giant musk shrew, hottentot golden mole, velvet monkey, multimamate mouse, grey climbing mouse, angoni vlei rat, common rodent mole, large spotted genet, banded mongoose, and slender mongoose.
