Cape Parrot Big Birding Day 2020
– 9 and 10 May 2020
I hope you are all keeping well in these unprecedented times.
Preshnee Singh had prepared the attached newsletter in March but I delayed sending it with the current COVID-19 crisis globally.
After much deliberation we decided the following:
Despite the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown and likely further extension, we would still have the Cape Parrot Big Birding Day 2020 on the 9 and 10 May 2020. However, only those people who are able to observe from where they are or are able to access localities without breaking any regulations will participate. Consequently, we will not get a population total estimate for 2020 but we still get important data on Cape Parrot presence or absence, behaviour etc.
Best wishes in these unprecedented times
