Familiar Chat Back Issues-March 2005
One third of the year has flown and we are once again approaching winter. The rains this year have been very disappointing and everyone in Gaborone and the surrounding area is having to comply with water rationing regulations..Birdlife Botswana has undertaken various projects and Pete Hancock writes about the 2005 Slaty egret study. Stephanie Tyler has completed her waterbird counts with very spectacular results from Lake Ngami. The tree identification course which was held by BLB was very successful and students can be seen diligently identifying samples supplied by Doreen . The Annual General Meeting will be held on the 14th May at the new Bird Life Botswana Offices and the guest speaker will be Warwick Tarboton. This is an event not to be missed and as many members as possible should attend.
