The world of birds

■ Find out more about the wonderful world of birds and birding, at the Somerset Mall on Saturday September 8 and Sunday September 9, with the Flight for Birders identification and conservation course. Roughly 30% of the course now focuses on the growing importance of birding tourism and therefore people working in the tourism and conservation industries should be encouraged to participate. The course now also includes details of BirdLife Overberg’s CleanMarine coastal conservation campaigns. For more information, visit, and register with Elaine at or 082 455 8402.
