Saturday 24: BLSA’s annual Birding Big Day. If you would like to participate go to www.birdlife.org.za and look under ‘events’, or contact me.

 And Most Importantly

Our annual End of Year function on Thursday 6th December at Fernkloof at 18:00

This will be a special celebration of our Club’s 15th birthday!

As usual we will also have our annual Photo Competition when you can show off your favourite bird photo and stand a chance to win a prize.

The rules are simple: Photos must have been taken by yourself & must be of a free-flying bird. (no, the bird does not have to be flying, but it must not be in a cage or in your hand 😉    A 15 x 20 print, mounted on an A4 paper with a caption on the front and your name on the back, must be handed in by 18:30 on the evening or delivered to a committee member beforehand. We are not looking for perfect photos, just your favourite ones – you may enter more than one photo.
