Wishing you all a wonderful 2014!
Here’s a list of birding activities you can start your new year with:
Firstly, there is our 2014 IBA Challenge which runs from 1st January to 30 April and has so far attracted more than 20 entrants. If you want to participate, please let me know and I’ll send details.
Wednesday 15 January at 19:00 is our first evening meeting for the year, with Mike Ford sharing his Turkey bird ringing experiences with us. The title of the presentation is ‘Another Slice of Turkey’ – maybe some left over from Christmas? Our January meetings are always well attended and Mike Ford is an excellent speaker, so do come early to get a seat!
Thursday 16th & Friday 17th at 18:00 two groups will enjoy cruising on the African Queen. There are TWO places available for the Friday evening. Please contact me if you want to join a group of excellent birders!
Looking further ahead, on Thursday 6th February we have a day outing to De Mond, meeting at Fernkloof at 07:00 and from 12 to 14 February a group of 24 members are booked for the De Hoop outing. Charles Naudé will share his amazing photos with us at our evening meeting on the 19th.
Two very important dates to diarize for March are our annual Mini-birding-Big Day on the 2nd and our AGM on the 19th.
Why not update your new diary by adding our evening meetings on the 3rd Wednesday at 19:00 from January to November and our morning walks on the 1st Thursday of every month.
