Rustenburg – From the guys at BirdLife Rustenburg… A very happy new year to all of our members and birding friends! May you have fabulous birding in 2018! 

To get the year off to a great start: Our January meeting will be held, as usual, at the Rustenburg Methodist Church, cnr Brink and Schuurman Streets, on 15 January, commencing at 19h00. This month will see Shaun McGillewie presenting the second session on Raptors and their identification. The presentation will cover, in detail, Raptors all of which may be found within a 100km radius of Rustenburg. Therefore, if you want to know more about Raptors and how to identify them, this is the meeting for you!

All are welcome with a donation of R20.00 for non-paid up members. Tea and snacks will be served after the meeting.


  • BirdLife Rustenburg’s January outing will be on 20 January and will be the Summer CWAC (Co-ordinated Waterbird Annual Count).

We will meet at the BP service station, Waterfall Mall at 07h00. As usual, we will cover the three main dams in our area namely: Kroondal, Olifantsnek and Rockwall. Bring along snacks and drinks and suntan lotion. We should be back in Rustenburg by 13h00. There will be a R20.00 donation for non-paid up members. All are welcome to what is always a very interesting and productive outing.

Should you wish to learn more about, participate in any of our events or if you have any birding topics to report or need help with identification of a bird (a picture will help), please feel free to contact Shaun McGillewie, BirdLife Rustenburg’s chairperson on 083 -02 1462.
