Breaking News

Dear BLM Member,

This is what we plan to do on Sunday 7th June, when it will be very cold.  We will meet at Molapo Crossing car park at 08:00.  So that we don’t break the Covid-19 laws which are in place, as soon as about ten people arrive, they will be allocated to Group Albatross.   The next ten will be allocated to Group Babbler and will congregate a distance away from Albatross.  The next ten will join group Chat and so on to groups Drongo and Eremomela if necessary, all keeping their distance from one another.  We will allocate a leader to each group and then proceed to south of Boatle to the Taung River.  There we will keep to our groups and a discrete distance from one another.  Please remember to wear your masks.  It would be appreciated if people would share transport if possible, in order to not attract undue attention.   Group Albatross will try to encourage any birds they see to fly towards Group Babbler.   They will in turn encourage birds they see to fly towards Group Chat and so on.    After the walk we will open our folding musical chairs and enjoy the refreshments we have brought for the occasion.

This is one walk which we won’t mind if you decide not to come, as we don’t want too many members there.

On a very sad note, we mourn the sudden passing of Sue Coleman this past weekend.  She had been a staunch member for many years, serving as our Membership Secretary for a long time until her tragic passing.  Her cheerful disposition and ready smile made her a popular member of our group.  She will be greatly missed.  Our sincere sympathies go to Steve and their daughter Sarah.
