‘GETTING MORE OUT OF BIRDING’ LECTURE SERIES (PART 4) @ online
Jan 18 @ 7:00 pm

Several requests have been received for illustrated online talks on bird-watching opportunities in areas and nature reserves that have not been highlighted previously. In this regard talks are now being prepared for the Greater Karoo, Route 62, the second talk on the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, the greater Swellendam district to include the De Hoop Nature Reserve and the Agulhas National Park. This series of talks will be presented online via Zoom and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home. Alternatively recordings of individual talks can be forwarded via We Transfer after completion of the series of talks.

THE GETTING MORE OUT OF BIRDING LECTURE SERIES is aimed at celebrating bird-watching opportunities at some of South Africa’s top birding destinations. Several National Parks and public and private nature reserves are being featured. The rationale behind this series is to enjoy many brilliant species to be found in these areas in the comfort of one’s home and to give guidelines on how to prepare for day-visits and extended visits when these areas are visited.
