Birding Weekend with Lia Steen
October 27, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - October 29, 2017 @ 2:00 pm| R1100
Come and enjoy a weekend of relaxed birding in the beautiful Marico middleveld.
Lia Steen has been birding most of her adult life but seriously since 2000. She is a committee member of Wits Bird Club for about 10 years. Lia is also known as ‘an atlasser’ – a citizen scientist, recording birds wherever she goes in Southern Africa. She has seen about 85% of Southern Africa’s birds. She leads birding groups and overseas visitors from time to time and has been on Birding tours on all 7 continents and enjoys taking photographs of the birds and nature.
Maybe with Lia, you will see the Marico sunbird…
