We would again like to invite everybody to join us for a lovely friendly morning with our Birdlife, Gauteng North Bird ringers for a bird ringing on the 19th August 2017 from 06:00 until 10:30.

Remember to bring something to eat and drink in your back pack, and also the cameras.

Remember that these bird ringing sessions are easily accessible for people with wheel chairs as well as the blind to join us. You can enjoy the beauty of our reserve and the blind persons will get the chance to sit with the ringers and get the feel of what is happening holding the birds.

We start early to put up the nets. Join us before it is too hot!

Hierdie is n wonderlike geleentheid vir persone in rolstoele sowel as blindes om saam ons te kom kuier. Die roete is maklik rolstoelvriendelik, en almal geniet die om te voëls van naby te sien en vas te hou.

Selfs die kleinste kinders geniet dit en u kan met stootwaentjies tot in ons voëlskerm met gemak kom. Hulle het n fees by sulke geleenthede.
Sal u asseblief vir ons as Vriende van Moreletakloof n donasie maak as u die uitstappie geniet het (donasie houer by die ingang van die reservaat waar u registreer).
