BIRDING OPPORTUNITIES IN NATIONAL PARKS LECTURE SERIES (PART 3)

Happening from the 24th November 2020 to 2nd December 2020

THE ‘GETTING MORE OUT OF BIRDING’ LECTURE SERIES
A FOCUS ON MORE NATIONAL PARKS (PART 3)

The contents of the ‘Flight for Birders’, ‘Flight Higher’ and ‘The Secret Life of Raptors’ courses by Dr Anton Odendal have been adapted for several shorter courses each consisting of individual one-hour sessions. These are being presented online via Zoom and can be enjoyed in the comfort of your home.

THE GETTING MORE OUT OF BIRDING LECTURE SERIES is aimed at celebrating bird-watching at some of South Africa’s top birding destinations. Several National Parks and public and private Nature Reserves will be featured at a time when over-night stays at these destinations remain somewhat restricted. The rationale behind this series is to enjoy many brilliant species to be found in these reserves in the comfort of one’s home and to give guidelines on how to prepare for day-visits and extended visits to these reserves given the Covid-19 restrictions when the reserve is visited.

The course contents and dates of presentation are as follows:

SESSION 1: Birding in the southern section of the Kruger National Park (Tuesday 24 November at 19h00)

SESSION 2: Birding in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park – Part 1 (Wednesday 25 November at 19h00)
