Familiar Chat Back Issues-June 2008
With the winter solstice almost here, we are half way through winter already! The current mild temperatures make birding a pleasure, so do get out as much as you can and submit your bird sightings to our Tickbird website. By following the easy steps in Pete’s article on p 3 even the most technologically challenged readers
can make a real contribution to bird conservation in Botswana. BLB is looking for a dynamic, capable young person to market the organization. The candidate will preferably be a Batswana citizen with good communication skills, be selfmotivated, presentable and dynamic. Contact Harold Hester for more information. Details p 12 Mike Goldsworthy has had beautiful membership badges made, sponsored by Magnum Freight. These are available at the Broadhurst shop (Members P50, Life Members free). Do purchase them and wear them proudly. Please renew your membership if you haven’t done so (it runs from Jan to Dec). A form is available on the website or page 13 of the previous newsletter. I greatly welcome all contributions or ideas as the newsletter needs to reflect members’ interests as well as being
informative on BirdLife matters! Forthcoming editions will feature a special children’s section to reflect our growing number of young members.
