A Birding Weekend With James Rawdon

SPONSORED: After the huge successes of the last two Starlight Production Birding Weekends with James Rawdon, Thanda Safari is pleased to welcome James back for a third Bird Ringing Weekend which will take place from Friday 25 to Sunday 27 June 2021.

Rawdon, who originally studied biology and worked for many years in the South African and Botswana bush has always been involved in nature and conservation and had a keen interest in birds. He pursued bird ringing as a hobby and later obtained his bird-ringing license in 2012. He has been ringing birds (and sharing his passion for birds) at various sites in and around KwaZulu-Natal ever since.

“Bird ringing allows you to see the birds up close”, he says, “and it provides a wonderful opportunity to teach children and adults about birds, conservation and the preservation of their natural resources”.

Thanda Safari, a 5-star private game reserve in the northern reaches of Zululand, KwaZulu Natal where the Great Rift Valley meets the Lebombo Mountains, set in an ancient landscape, steeped in Zulu history and home to more than 400 different bird species, offers the perfect environment for this unique opportunity.
