The Rare Birds of Northern Namibia


On Wednesday 20 June, Peter Dagg will be talking about his trip to northern Namibia.  In his words, “I had always fancied seeing the Cunene’s big four, namely The Angola Cave Chat, the Grey Kestrel , the Cinderella Waxbill and the Rufous-tailed Palm Thrush. This tour, although expensive, was and ideal opportunity to not only achieve this objective, but to add some desert species to my list as well.”

Don’t miss this talk at Fernkloof .  The meeting commences at 18h30 and is preceded by the opportunity to meet for a drink and a chat at 18h00.
