Speaker: Michael Mason
Topic: “Cape to Kruger”
Michael is a passionate ‘birder’ and takes wonderful Wildlife and bird pictures.
During the earlier part of 2020, he took part in the Cape Town 150km challenge, and most of his birding was done in Cape Town and surrounds. During December 2020 he took his family to Kruger Park for a 3 week holiday. He ended the year with incredible wildlife sightings, and great summer birding up North. Looking forward to his presentation.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING of TYGERBERG BIRD CLUB – on ZOOM
The shortened AGM will be followed by the monthly talk.
SPEAKER: Kevin Drummond-Hay
Topic: “Karoo Shy Five”
In October last year, Kevin and a group of TBC members had a lovely birding trip to Southern Free State and the Karoo. They visited the Karoo Gariep Nature Reserve, and had great evening drives to see the nocturnal mammals. Their goal was to see the ‘shy five’ – animals that are difficult to find. Birding was great, with korhaan, larks and coursers being some of the highlights. A really nice area for birding.
OUTINGS – Cancelled until further Notice.
