BIRDLIFE OVERBERG QUARTERLY BIG BIRD COUNT ON 11 MAY
Happening on the 11th May 2019
BIRDING BIG COUNT DAY ON 11 MAY 2019
We will again do our quarterly big count in the various regions of the Overberg – this will be the 9th one. Remember that we try to establish how species diversity changes through different seasons throughout our region. We do this according to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s model for global big bird counts. You can read more about the count during May 2018 at this link:
You can therefore pick and choose on where you want to participate – just confirm your participation with the co-ordinator. The contact details of the co-ordinators and leaders in the various regions will be released by the end of April. Here are some of the co-ordinator who had confirmed participation at this stage: Anton (082 550 3347) from Onrus to Karwyderskraal, Jenny (083 448 2467) from Kleinmond to Rooiels, Steve (081 817 3223) in the Napier district and Riaan (082 373 8270) in the greater Gansbaai area. We are still in need of members to assist us with counts in the central Hermanus area - Fernkloof, Prawn Flats, cliff path, etc. Please consider helping us as co-ordinator in that area as we have most of the other areas in our region covered.
Kindly join us for this fun day and let us see how many species we can get on the day. Don’t forget to bring your friends and potential newcomers along.
