■ Cheryl Rundle, the fund-raising and events coordinator at Helderberg Hospice, sent us a picture last week of a bird in their Garden of Remembrance, but incorrectly captioned it as a blue crane. A number of eagle-eyed readers contacted us to let us know it was actually a black-headed heron. Bolander then contacted Dr Anton Odendal, the chairman of Birdlife Overberg and Western Cape Birding Forum, who supplied us with these lovely photographs of a blue crane, above, and a black-headed heron, right. See the What’s On notice on this page for the next Flight for Birders course, for those who wish to learn more about South Africa’s abundant wealth of birdlife.
