Just next to Sunninghill, in the little suburb of Paulshof, you will find the 25 hectare green space known as Rietfontein Nature Reserve. It is also where FreeMe Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre is based, who heal and return to the wild a fair number of birds.
There is also a beautiful 2.5km circular walking trail that is well maintained and provides a lovely pathway from which to sight the myriad birds that make this reserve home.
Some of the species you may see include little swifts, Cape glossy starlings, sacred ibis, southern masked weavers, rock pigeons, black-collared barbets, Cape robin-chats, mousebirds, greater-striped swallows, fiscal flycatchers and many more.
You are also likely to spot a number of buck roaming in the hills if you are quiet enough. The quartzite koppie is also home to grey loeries who seem to enjoy it as their centrepiece.
