Its an upside down world for some!

Fernkloof Flower Festival


  • We will be having a stand again this year and need volunteers to man the stand for a morning or afternoon session. Very much a PR function but we do hope to get new members signed up and I am sure that this year’s stand will attract lots of attention and hopefully questions about birding in our area and across the country. Anyone able to spend a few hours flying the HBC stand should please let me know The show is on from the 22nd to the 25th September.   Craig

Thank You


The members who attended the Annual Quiz last night were treated to some great entertainment. Mike conducted a really first class quiz with stimulating and varied questions. He had put a huge amount of work into it and we all appreciated his excellent effort.

Then at half time we were provided with some really tasty soups to warm us on what must have been one of he coldest and wettest nights of the year.  Well done and thanks to all the members who put out to make the evening a great success and well done to the winners!


Quiz Night


Don’t forget the Quiz tonight when Mike Ford will be testing us on our birding knowledge.  The doors open at 5:30pm for wine and the quiz will start at 6:00.  Soup and sherry (or wine at R10) will be served at half time.  Come along and test yourself and stand a chance to win a prize!
