The fair was as successful as an outdoor event can be, given the vagaries of a British summer, which can be remarkably wet.
This proved to be the case on two of the three days. Nevertheless, attendance held up and the Club had a successful three days. Like many small charities, the Club is run by volunteers who offer their time to man the stand. Council members are prominent, but are supported by a willing band of helpers. The commitment does not end with the three days of the fair, as stock has to be made available, bul- letins put in envelopes, and every- thing has to be assembled according to plan.
Prospective members can ; exist- ing members can collect their copies of the current Bulletin; and those new to birding in Africa can meet those with first-hand knowledge of the continent.
People meet and rem- inisce about past trips, discuss future ones or just discuss the state of affairs in one country or another. Our corporate sponsors have their name and logo prominently dis- played on the stand. Many of our sponsors are present at the Fair too. Credit card payments Many members pay their subscrip- tions, donations and for sales items using a credit card, either via the website or by mail order.
Since earlywe have used an electronic payment facility for processing trans- actions which has proved reliable and efficient. It is also cheaper for the Club to process transactions this way as bank charges are less than for paper transactions. In order to use electronic processing, we require you to send your Customer Verification Code CVC with your other credit card details.
Your CVC code com- prises the final three digits in the sig- nature strip on the back of your card. The website and our literature have been modified to reflect the change, which will improve transac- tion security and reduce costs.
It receives over 15, unique visitors each month, c. Disappointing is the low volume to date from African countries. Downloadable country checklists were launched in March and have proved very popular, with over 4, downlo to date, the most popular countries being South Africa, The Gambia, Morocco and Ethiopia.
By the time of publication, we hope to have a checklist in place for every country. In addition, we continue to add multiple checklists for countries where appropriate and where published information is avail- able. This can be especially relevant for Sex chat rooms in Los Ajoques, e.
The database supporting the checklists now has overentries; if you hnd any errors, please let the Club know. The African Bird Image Database also continues to be a well-used resource. The database and of registered photographers are still growing and, at the time of writing, there were 8, photos of 1, species contributed by photogra- phers. There are still many species found in Africa for which we lack images, so we would appreciate help to fill the gaps. A further major development has been the introduction of a discussion forum on the website.
We believe that this is the first internet forum dedicated to the birds of all Africa. Its objectives are: to provide the capability for interactive discussion on all aspects of birds in the region; to provide a facility to document recent sightings and share photos; to provide help with species identifica- tion, travel, etc; to incorporate sound, video and new technologies in the future; and to construct a database of information with com- prehensive search capabilities. An analysis of AfricanBirding e- mails determined the topic structure of the forum.
We will continue to run AfricanBirding in parallel with the forum and post its e-mails to the forum. That way, useful information will be stored in the database and thus be available subsequently. We expected that the additional capabili- ties of the forum would mean that the majority of AfricanBirding users would post to the forum directly.
However, the e-mail system has con- tinued to be very popular. Whilst forum items have been viewed by users on a regular basis, there has been little discussion. For example, a photograph of a mystery booby Sula sp. Contributed by John Caddick Club membership The membership at the end of was stable at c. The Club has members in 70 countries with the UK representing c. On the inside back cover of each Bulletin is a list of ABC country rep- resentatives, together with a list of countries with no current representa- tive.
A volunteer has been received from the USA, but given that it is such a large country, there is a need to appoint up to three representa- tives. Further volunteers are welcome for the USA, as are volunteers for those countries without a representa- tive. Richard has helped steer the Club to its current position of a stable mem- bership, healthy financial state and an increasingly attractive bulletin. He hopes the bulletin will become full colour in due course. ABC wishes him every success in the future.
Elaine Cook Elaine retired from Council with effect fromafter four years service, but will continue as Corporate Sponsorship and Publicity Officer. Council thanks Julie for her valuable contribution to the Club. Contributed by Richard Webb Promoting the Club As British-based members may have seen, the magazine Birdtuatch recent- ly published an article to promote the Club. We hope that the article will help promote the Club and increase membership. We also thank Crowes for producing the fliers for the mailshot free of charge.
Consequently, new members some- times receive photocopies of certain issues. If you have any unwanted copies, please consider donating them to the Club, to replenish stocks.
African Bird Club checklist ABC website visitors will have noticed a recent update to the check- list of African birds. In January a major update was placed on the site, comprising a review of all scien- tific names, including some splits, as well as brief notes on status, habitat and range for all non-passerines. For the most recent update, status, habi- tat and range information has been extended to all Sex chat rooms in Los Ajoques.
Also a series of newly recorded, or ly missed! There is a list Sex chat rooms in Los Ajoques the Introduction of changes that have been made to preferred names, enabling users to update more easily. This list does not represent a definitive taxonomic statement, either by the Club or myself. Decisions as to which taxa to consid- er as species and the name or names to use are pragmatic choices based largely on the most commonly used names in Africa, but with an emphasis on more recent publica- tions.
As users of the list will know, it is deed primarily so that read- ers can determine the form being considered, as it includes notes on different treatment in other major lists, which have been updated to include the most recent Clements checklist, that by BirdLife International and recent volumes of Handbook of the Birds of the World. Mistakes must remain and these, along with details of any new species for the list, can be sent to me via e- mail: checklist africanbirdclub.
There will be two birding trips, to Tanzania and Madagascar, and two birding camps closer to home, at the Dronfield Reserve, in the Kimberley area, and Red Stone Hills near Callitzdorp. President, Peter Steyn. A major conservation fundraising initiative will also be year-long. Leon Fouche, a gifted young artist has been commissioned to paint a Grey- headed Albatross Thalassarche chrysostoma.
The original, and limit- ed edition prints of this, plus other prizes will be used in raffles locally and internationally, including at the British Birdwatching Fair at Rutland Water in August, in anticipation of raising up to R1 00, We are most grateful for any donation, however small, as we always have more worthy applications for conservation projects than we can afford to sup- port.
In we received more than 60 dona- tions from members, as well as four from Corporate Sponsors. Thank you especially to Matthew Boyer, M. Recent applications Nine new applications for conservation awards had been received by Octoberof which eight have been, or will be, given ABC awards. The proposed Blue Swallow study is targeted towards conserving remnant wintering sites in Busia District, western Kenya, where a chain of small grasslands some seasonally flooded are surrounded by intensive agriculture, and grazed by livestock. The Conservation Committee con- sidered that it was probably too late to do much for the species in the area and no award was made.
The area is largely semi- arid bushland and scrubby grassland, with ripar- ian woodland and palms along the river. Malkamari was gazetted as a National Park indue to its reportedly high concentration of wildlife, but its avifauna is little known. This sunbird, treated as Endangered, is a coastal forest endemic with a small and fragmented range, known mainly from Arabuko-Sokoke Forest Kenya and the East Usambara and Udzungwa mountains Tanzania.
The former area faces major threats from increased clearance of its valuable trees for poles, carving and fuelwood, greatly affecting its Amani Sunbird population. The gen- eral objective of this project is to establish the conservation and ecological status of Amani Sunbird in order to evaluate potential threats, and to gather data essential for specific manage- ment plans for the species and its habitats. Two successful applications were received from BirdLife Botswana. Surveys in South Africa have revealed a marked decline in the s of this restricted-range lark see Bull.
ABC BirdLife Botswana has been surveying suitable habitat in at least six squares using the same methodology as used in the early s by Marc Herremans. Field work was undertaken in November-Decemberand Januaryat the start of the breeding season when birds were singing. The second project involves continuing transects in the Central Kalahari Game Reserve.
Invisiting birders, Jim Glover and Christine Skinner undertook some counts of key bird species along transects in the reserve. In Neil Taylor refined these and made counts in the dry season of all birds of conservation concern. The ABC award will extend this work to the wet season and train local counterparts to continue bird monitoring there. The surveys provided much useful information on vultures, other raptors and many terrestrial species, including frequencies to be cal- culated for globally or nationally threatened species such as Lappet-faced Torgos tracheliotus, White-backed Gyps africanus and White-headed Vultures Trigonoceps occipitalisMartial Eagle Polemaetus bellicosus, Bateleur Terathopius ecauda- tus and Kori Bustard Ardeotis kori.
The ABC award will be allocated to the bursaries and living expenses of the Malagasy counterparts. The subspecies S. Moreover, little is known concerning its move- ments or threats. Colour ringing of the main colony at Ghara Island should provide important data in respect of these issues.Sex chat rooms in Los Ajoques
