A group of Friends were at the Tea Room at Rondevlei Nature Reserve last Saturday and ran into Dalton doing his monthly Bird Ringing. It was amazing to see how this little guy was so comfortable after a few minutes of being caught that he was having a drink of sweet nectar while the “bird-man” held him? (Dalton Gibbs, you are a genius with birds- it’s those gentle hands ????)

Bird Ringing takes place every second Saturday of the month at Rondevlei Nature Reserve from 8am to 11:30-12:00. If you are unsure about the weather phone the gate house on 0217062404 to find out if it is taking place. All welcome, it’s free, no booking is required. If I had attended the fun, educational session from the start I would probably be able to give you the “Latin name” of the bird and the vegetation by now ! Next time!!
