Dear all,

Sue-Ann from CROW rang me yesterday afternoon, to say that the Black Oystercatcher entangled in fishing tackle and line and rescued at Brighton Beach, is being released back there today. She asked that if any members go there regularly, please keep an eye out for the bird. It was an adult so may have a mate in the area as well. She has ringed it.

Best regards

Lesley

We have great pleasure in inviting BirdLife Port Natal to CROW’s upcoming fundraising event which is taking place on Thursday, the 25th July 2013 at the Barnyard Theatre.

Attached you will find full details of our event and the We are the Champions show, which promises to be hugely entertaining and lots of fun!

While on-going initiatives like our 1000 100 Club are certainly helping us to cover our monthly expenses such as animal feed and medical care, there are also several projects that are urgently needed at our centre, such as repairing some of our animal’s enclosures and furnishing our clinic with the latest medical equipment.

So please do consider joining us at the Barnyard and inviting as many of your family, friends and work colleagues along as possible! We promise you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you so much for your on-going support and we look forward to sharing an enjoyable and memorable evening with you in aid of our wildlife.

With much thanks,

Paul Hoyte

Wednesday 17 April : visit to CROW

Wednesday 17 April : visit to CROW

Dear all,

We have organised a very interesting outing to CROW next week and so look
forward to seeing those of you who are able to join us, for a wonderful
morning with the staff and particularly to see their rehabilitation of our
indigenous birds. Looking forward to seeing you then. If you’re planning
on staying for tea afterwards, please add in a couple of extra muffins or
biscuits as I have invited their director and staff to join us. Under her
direction, many new and exciting developments are taking place at CROW.

Best regards

Lesley

Wednesday 17 April. Visit to CROW with Lesley Frescura. Meet there at 08h30.
This is a wonderful opportunity to share the Centre’s work with people who
have a vested interest in protecting our local birdlife. We can observe the
birds within and those who have chosen to make their home in the spacious
grounds. Bring tea and chairs for later. Directions:

1. Get on the N2 freeway from Durban heading towards Port Shepstone (i.e.
south coast, opposite direction to going to the airport). Take the Edwin
Swales/Solomon Mahlangu turn off onto the M7. At the traffic lights turn
left onto the M7 and get into the right-hand lane. At the next set of
traffic lights, turn right into Wakesleigh Road (keep left once you’ve
turned). 50 metres up Wakesleigh Road glide left into Cliffview Road. Carry
on along Cliffview Road until you get to the stop sign – there will be a
railway bridge ahead of you. At the stop sign turn let into Sarnia Road (not
well signposted, but just turn left!). Carry on along Sarnia Road and when
you get to the first set of traffic lights turn right over the railway
bridge into Coedmore Road. Carry on along Coedmore Road (you will go past a
quarry, cross over a river and along a road with lots of speed bumps and big
trees. CROW is right at the end of Coedmore Avenue – you’ll know you’re on
the right road when you see the CROW signs and speed bumps.
