Birding for beginners in the Cape-February 2009

Unread postby Bush Baptist » Tue Feb 10, 2009 12:55 pm

I am planning a birding outing on Saturday Afternoon, 21th Feb, at Paarl Bird Sanctuary. If you are not into birding and would like to start, or you have seen a few, come and join us. It will be geared for novices. Nobody need be put off by lack of knowledge.
If you are likely to come, please reply via this thread. If you have knowledge and are willing to share it, you are also welcome.
BTW, the Stormers play on the Friday....
