Breaking News

Sunday Bird Walk and AGM ; Firstly it is our December walk on Sunday 6th.  We meet as usual at Molapo Crossing at 06:30, then drive out to the Picnic site at the western end of Gaborone Dam.  There we will explore the site and do our short bird walk.  After recent rains many interesting species are falling out of the trees and we should see the Notwane Dam overflowing into Gaborone Dam.  It is a most attractive spot with manicured lawns under beautiful shady trees.  Please bring folding chairs or you can sit on the lawn, but folding chairs will be more comfortable and genteel.

2020 AGM update : After the walk at about 08:30 we will have our AGM.  Owing to Covid we have had to postpone it until Sunday.  It is very important that YOU ATTEND  the AGM or send in a PROXY.  A proxy form is appended above for those who cannot attend.  Please submit one if you cannot come along.  It is very important to us that you do so.  After the AGM, we will relax and share delicious snacks provided by the Secret Chef specially for the occasion.  There will also be fruit juice and champagne for members.   If you have paid your membership for next year, you will be allowed to have an extra glass of champagne.  Coffee and tea will be provided.   If you are a coffee snob, you are encouraged to bring your own with a dash of cream.

2021 calendar : We will be selling our BLB calendars for 2021 at the AGM; the theme for these calendars is “Garden birds”.  They are most attractive and make excellent Christmas gifts.   See an example appended here.  The desktop calendars cost P75 each and the A3 size wall hanging ones P135 each.  If you are concerned we may run out of them before the meeting, you can phone ahead and place an order with Dikabelo before Sunday (3190540).
