Rustenburg – BirdLife Rustenburg will host a very interesting outing on 22 June – to the Nyoka Ridge Vulture Restaurant in the Hekpoort area. 

It is situated at the foot of the Magaliesberg Mountain in the Hekpoort vicinity. It is a private feeding station for the endangered Cape Vulture, managed by Birdlife Harties. This outing is a rare opportunity to see and photograph these interesting birds feeding and flying upclose.

Other birds that can be expected to view in the area are raptors such as the African Harrier Hawk, Little Sparrow Hawk, White-backed, and Lappet-faced Vultures. Bushveld and grass-veld birds such as the Rufous- naped Lark, Cape Longclaw and much more.

BirdLife Rustenburg will meet at BP Mall at 07:00 and should be back in Rustenburg at about 14:00. Everyone is welcome and non-members must pay R20.00 per person. 

Feel free to contact BirdLife Rustenburg chairperson, Shaun McGillewie, on 083 702 1462 for more information. 

If you need help with the identification of a bird, send a picture!
