Weather looks good for Thursday walk

 

The Club’s August morning walk will be on Ian and Jessie Walton’s farm in the Elgin Valley on Thursday the 4th. At this stage the weather looks promising. A clear sky is forecast, after rain on Wednesday.

The farm, Keurbos Nursery, specialises in indigenous plants and Heritage Roses. But the main attraction from a birding point of view is that Jessie has created a bird-friendly environment on the farm, with dams and bird hides.

The Waltons added part of a neighbouring farm recently, with a log cabin overlooking a dam, where a pair of Jackal Buzzards (Rooibors-jakkalsvoëls) breed regularly.

We meet at the Onrust Trading Post on Thursday at 07:30 to consolidate transport. Bring your own snacks.

The outing will be led by Craig Holmes and Mike Ford.
