Rustenburg – Our April meeting will be held, as usual, at the Rustenburg Methodist Church, c/o Brink and Schuurman streets, on 16 April commencing at 19h00.

The guest speaker will be John Wesson, the regional and conservation manager of WESSA. He will be talking on - Birds and Conservation of the Magaliesberg. All are welcome, with a donation of R20.00 for non-paid up members. Tea and snacks will be served after the meeting.

The April outing will be held on Saturday 21 April, at the Harties Vulture Restaurant (Nyoka Ridge). We will also visit other prime spots in the Hekpoort area.

These areas contain a great selection of ‘special’ birds including: Cape Vulture, Verreaux’s Eagle, Marabou Stork, European Honey Buzzard, Jackal Buzzard, and the African Finfoot. 

We meet at the BP Garage, Waterfall Mall at 07h00 and will return home by 14h00.

In addition to your binoculars, bring a spotting scope if you have one. Also bring along the usual drinks, snacks etc. All are welcome to what should be a very productive outing. A donation of R20 is levied for non-members.

Should you wish to learn more about, participate in any of our events, or if you have any birding topics to report or need help with identification of a bird (a picture will help), please feel free to contact our chairperson: Shaun McGillewie on 083-702 1462
