The rivulet is a resting place for traveller birds which have to fly over 1000 km from the nearest large land mass. They come seasonally and it is possible to see them in a natural habitat.

I don't understand the poor reviews from others on this site. It is easy to find, with big brown signs as you drive through Port Louis. The reserve itself is small compared to British/western standards, with just a single hide but the warden on site...More
