The Cape Bird Club
WEEKEND CAMP at SWELLENDAM
We are planning a weekend camp at the municipal chalets in Swellendam for the long weekend from
Friday 18 to Monday 21 March 2011 (3 nights). A notice will appear in the February issue of Promerops, but this will be very short notice for bookings and we need to be fully booked to cover our costs.
Cost: R300 per person for the three nights. Anne Gray has negotiated a very good price - in fact an unrepeatable bargain, so donít miss out!
Please book without delay by contacting John Magner
on firstname.lastname@example.org or

Birding Big Day with the Cape Flat Bird Club at Edith Stephens.
The Sasol / SA Birdlife National Birdweek took place during the first week of May.
Observing the Guineafowl. Looking for birds in the Fynbos garden.
The Cape Bird Club effort towards the Bird Week was to financially assist children from an underpriviledged school to be bussed to the Goldfields EE Centre during that week to attend the programme.
The school we assisted was the Luleka Primary
School. We received some photographs of the children, from the education staff, with their
thank you e-mail.
