An outing to the Sebayeng wetlands
 
These wetlands, close to the University of Limpopo in Mankweng, have been for some time a hot-spot for interesting sightings, and thus it was with high expectations that nine of us set off from town on the morning of 25 March 2017. Arriving around the break of dawn, we were greeted by Cattle Egrets flying overhead. Almost immediately, Jody recognized the distinctive call of a River Warbler! ... [read more]
Cordier Bewarea voelopname
 
Birdlife Polokwane is deur Wian Haddad van ZZ2 se Cordier Bewarea versoek om 'n voelopname namens hulle te doen. Die opname het Vrydagmiddag 31 Maart 2017 om 17:00 begin en het tot 11:00 Sondagoggend 2 April 2017 geduur. Al die voels wat gesien en/of gehoor is was aangeteken.

Birdlife Polokwane Bird Ringing Demonstration - 4 March 2017

Our goal: to have the mist-nets up and open before dawn. No easy task in the dark when it feels like every Umbrella Thorn (Vachellia (Acacia) tortillis) is trying to get you and your precious mist-nets. ... [read more]
Nyslvley Uitstappie - 25 Februarie 2017
 
Die opkoms vir die uitstappie was baie swak, aangesien dit die keer 'n goeie nat seisoen is, wat 'n paar skaars watervoels mag trek en dit normaalweg 'n gewilde uitstappie is. Met berigte dat daar reeds skaars trekvoels is wat gesien is het ons (Richter, Jody, Conrad en Gershwin) vroeg die oggend uit Polokwane vertrek met die hoop op iets spesiaals. ... [read more]
