There are two good reasons not to miss this month’s Club meeting. Firstly, it is the annual general meeting (AGM) and secondly, the speaker will be Jessie Walton.
Jessie, bird lover and researcher from Elgin, will give a presentation based on her research on a little bird that many birders may have seen but not recognized – the Brown-backed Honeybird (Skerpbek-heuningvoël).
That will be followed by the AGM, including the election of a new Committee that will consist of at least three new faces. A vacancy needs to be filled, and two members are not available for re-elction.
The meeting, at the Fernkloof Reserve Hall on Wednesday 18 March, will begin half an hour earlier, at 18:30. There will be drinks and snacks afterwards.
