Monthly meeting with Bowmans at six

Did you know that Sri Lanka’s national bird, known as the Ceylon Junglefowl, is closely related to the ancestor of the common chicken?

It is also one of more than 20 (some say 23, others say 26) endemic birds of this island country the size of Ireland. The total number of bird species recorded there is close to 500, of which 219 are breeding residents.

If you want to hear and see more of the wonderful birds of Sri Lanka, come to the Club monthly meeting on Wednesday 20 May, when John and Sheelagh Bowman will do a presentation of their recent birding trip.

Please note that the meeting, in the Fernkloof Reserve Hall, begins at 18:00 – an hour earlier than the usual time. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available afterwards. Vistors are welcome.

  1. So sad to be missing this talk on Wednesday. Mick and I are in the Kruger Park area and Sabie River Bungalows. Poor Fynns. Our apologies.
