AFRICAN WATERBIRD COUNT JANUARY 2013
SINAMATELLA AND ROBINS - HWANGE NATIONAL PARK

Is this the same place? Are we in HWANGE?

We couldn't wait to get back into Hwange National Park after all the good reports we'd been getting about the rainfall and leapt at the chance of doing the January waterfowl count up at Sinamatella and Robins. We were absolutely incredulous at seeing the difference from the last time we were there in October. After all the heartache and stress of the last few months of last year, the park is looking magnificent - none of us had seen the park so beautiful, so lush, green and with water everywhere we looked. It is quite astounding to see how the veld has revived - Nature certainly is a wondrous thing and there was grass where there not normally is any - ever!

We began our trip travelling through to Sinamatella from Main Camp. The roadsides were embroidered with wild flowers and there were clumps of bright flame lilies popping their head above the tall grass. The vehicle had quite a wade through water to get to the Nyamandhlovu platform where the water was almost up to the platform pillars. The little resident herd of wildebeest had several light brown calves afoot and the herds of impala we came across also had a good crop of babies.
Nyamandhlovu Pan Hawange
On the way through, waterfowl counts were done at Guvelala, Shapi, Danga, Roan, Dwarf Goose and the various water spots at and around Shumba. All the pans were full to bursting with a lot of grass cover around the edges, making it difficult to spot the little waders sometimes. There was quite a storm brewing up as we were approaching Masuma so it was decided that we would carry straight on to Sinamatella as we were uncertain what the road conditions up ahead were like, having been warned at Main Camp that we might just not get through. Despite a few dodgy patches, we had no trouble getting through and, having booked into our accommodation, we watched in fascination as the rain we'd just been in, began sweeping across the vlei below us, eventually sending down a deluge on the camp.

The following morning, having coffee with a view and listening to the birds, a small band of friendly dwarf mongooses foraged past us, pausing in their search for breakfast to stand on their hind legs and give us a good stare with their little beady eyes and noses twitching. As we headed off for the day, we found one of the vleis teeming with white winged widowbirds, the black males sitting atop slender grass stems, fanning their tails and displaying, with flashes of bright yellow as they took off for another stalk. Crossing many of the little streams and rivers, we could see just how much water must have been going over at some stage, judging by the debris caught up in the bushes and amongst the branches of trees. We met up with Stephen and Sue Long at Mandavu to conduct a count there. The dam is full to almost spilling which none of us had ever seen before. Here again, most of the shoreline was grass covered with several little streams still seeping in, their sides covered with tall grass too, which made counting difficult but we did our best at the various accessible spots we could get to.

An osprey, two glossy ibis, several yellowbilled storks and two nesting Goliath herons fussing over the placement of nest material while precariously perched atop a little bush, topped the bill here. We then moved on to Masuma. The pan there has been scooped but unfortunately, the job was not completed and when the workers came in, they had to breech the wall in order to get the heavy machinery in and had not repaired it. As the little dam was absolutely full, the water had just begun to flow back through the breech. However, there are plans underway to sand bag it up until it can be fixed properly. The back pan which has developed was also a little lake and a flotilla of fluffy Egyptian goslings with proud mum and dad was making its way across this when we arrived and a lone spoonbill spooning along the far bank. There was a competition on to see who could spot the most water dikkops as they hunkered down in the mounds of mud remaining from the dam scooping. While counting, two saddlebilled storks made an elegant appearance and there was one grey crowned crane sauntering around amongst the waterbuck. Once back in camp, another shower of rain approached and although it didn't quite get to us, it was quite breathtaking watching it sweeping along.

On Monday we set off for the Robins area and were delighted that Stephen and Sue Long, with their vast experience, agreed to join us for the day again. We didn't get to see too much at the Deteema Dam picnic site as the grass was too tall but went on to the Mike Edwards picnic site. We were delighted to see the camp in such an orderly condition with the grass all slashed and everything clean. The dam was almost full with quite a puddle behind the wall where a few waterbirds were counted. There were two families of Egyptian geese, both with eight fluffly babies and the prize sighting here was of a black crowned night heron, skulking in the shade of a tree overhanging the water. As it always seems to happen, we moved on to Salt Pan in the heat of the day and were greeted by a young greater flamingo. The pan was fuller than any of us had seen before and not nearly as many birds as in our 2012 count.

However, it was still a hectically busy count and the telescope came in handy for the far bank. Apart from the flamingo, we saw three long toed plovers which is a rarity and much discussion ensued as to which pratincoles were which and how many of each - collared and/or black winged!! Definitely both were present. There was a good count of Hottentot teal, a few red billed teal and only two Cape teal. Three giraffe galloped past at one stage, probably disturbed by one or other of us moving around to get a better sighting. With another storm approaching and several places along the road had been fairly sticky coming through, it was decided to return to Sinamatella. At the bottom of the hill, just before climbing up to the camp, we came across a most unusual sighting. We first saw a large, brightly coloured ginger cat with beautiful white markings way out in the bush and then saw that it was with an African wild cat, which was lying down right next to it. As we were watching, both cats got up and skulked off. We could only guess that the ginger had gone feral. As we sat with sundowners, we were treated to a gorgeous sunset, lighting up huge thunderheads with golden and pink light just in front of us. The next morning, after breakfast and packing up, we took a drive along the Salt Springs road and did a little waterbirding there before returning to Bulawayo.

Although we didn't see many animals all the time we were in the Park, those that we did see, certainly seemed much happier and definitely fatter. It was lovely watching a small breeding herd of elephants, wading through tall green grass up to the top of their legs with the smaller ones almost obscured. The dung beetles were out in full force with their perfectly rounded spheres of dung and we came across several tortoises, some minute fellows, plodding along. There were several large sounders of warthog with varying sizes of piglets and we came across the biggest boar we've ever seen with the most exceptionally large tusks. Although we didn't see any lion, we heard them every morning. There had been reports of sightings near camp as well as several sightings of wild dog. Birding, generally, was excellent.

So......for those of you out there who thought that poor ol' Hwange would never come right again, get to the Park at the first possible opportunity - its BEAUTIFUL!!!! Just be sure, though, that you have a sturdy vehicle and better still a 4x4!

3) Roses And Raspberries
These dreaded POT HOLES on just about every road that are destroying our small vehicles.............wouldn't you make an appeal on your Morning Mirror for all people of Bulawayo who have Pot Holes either outside their residential properties OR places of business, to take it upon themselves to make an attempt to fill in these holes. If we all contributed in this small way, our trips around town and suburbs would be so much safer and less harmful to our valuable vehicles.

One example: Standard Bank Belmont has a huge Pot Hole on the bend outside it's premises leading onto Plumtree Road........how many of their own clients have damaged their vehicle leaving the Bank? And another Bank is ZB Bank Belmont, it's absolutely awful driving in or out of that business premises.....

I have to agree with Cathy. I am also on a prepaid meter and on the 14th of December 2012 i purchased units for $60.00 and i was issued with about 615 units. On the 16th of January i purchased units for another $60-00 and this time i was given 482 units, so that means i was given about 133 units less and i only noticed this after i had punched my numbers. I obviously thought that there was something wrong with my meter and then i checked the coupon only to discover that i was given 482 units.133 units is about over a week of zesa which is a lot. No matter which way zesa tries to justify it i feel it's a rip off.

ZIMBABWE PENSION AND INSURANCE RIGHTS TRUST

ZimPIRT helps its members claim their rightful benefit entitlements. The organisation's key service offerings are:-
? To assess whether members have been entitled their full pension and/or insurance benefits
? To draft claim letters on behalf of the member and claim any benefit under-entitlements, whenever the assessment establishes that the rightful benefit entitlement is higher than what was actually entitled or paid out by an insurance company
? To appeal to the courts and to the Insurance and Pensions Commission (IPEC), the regulator of pensions and insurance operations in Zimbabwe, for arbitration, in the event the insurance company or the administrator, does not respond satisfactorily within a stated stipulated time
? To carry out evaluations on whether the management of members' pension and/or insurance funds was in accordance with established pension and insurance funds management practices (best practices), and establish the cause of any under-entitlements
Achievements of the Organisation to date
On a national level, the organisation has made significant progress in the strategy to secure full rightful benefits from insurance companies. The achievements are outlined as follows; Forced an investigation on the correctness (or otherwise) of pension and insurance values as calculated by insurance companies Proved that the pension and insurance values as calculated by insurance companies were not correct, at least judging by the suppression of the investigation report Proved that Insurance and Pension Commission (IPEC) regulation and governance of the pension and insurance industries may not be efficient, transparent and accountable Enlisted the support of the Minister of Finance in ultimately providing restitution for any prejudices suffered

PAB AND THE ACADEMY
WAGNER: PARSIFAL : ACTS II & III
Friday 1 February at 6.30 p.m. in the Robert Sibson Hall
The second half of Wagner's final opera includes some of the most moving and beautiful music he ever wrote. The novelist Philip Hensher wrote that "Wagner is massive, and pensive. Dramatically, the first and last acts of 'Parsifal' are like watching a flower open slowly... but musically there's not much in sheer power to touch it." Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]. Supper available during the interval.

DOWNTON ABBEY - SERIES 3
Thursdays 31 January and 7, 14 & 21 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 7.00 p.m.
Series three of "the nation's best-loved costume drama" begins with the revelation that, thanks to an ill-judged investment in the Canadian railways, the Crawleys have lost nearly all of their fortune and will have to give up Downton Abbey. Meanwhile preparations for the marriage of Matthew and Mary are in full swing, but will there be a last-minute hitch?... What more is there to say? - except that the 2012 "Christmas Special" (NOT set at Christmas and entitled "A Journey to the Highlands"!) will be shown at the end of the series! Admission: $3.00 [free to film members

ROSSINI: TANCREDI
Friday 8 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Rossini's "Tancredi" was first performed two hundred years ago on 6 February 1813, and was soon translated into twelve languages and performed all over Europe and the Americas. It set the composer at the forefront of his contemporaries, a position he quickly consolidated with "L'Italiana in Algeri" (to be shown in May) three months later. "The overall dramatic impact of this outstanding performance is facilitated by the set, costume design and stage direction whilst the singing and acting of Daniela Barcellona as Tancredi take the laurels of the evening: it is impossible to imagine her performance, acted or sung, being bettered... " [Musicweb-International] Supper available during the interval. Admission: $3.00 [free to Red Carpet members]

BRITTEN: THE PRINCE OF THE PAGODAS - BALLET
Friday 15 February in the Robert Sibson Hall at 6.30 p.m.
Kenneth MacMillan's created his version of Britten's "The Prince of the Pagodas" in 1989 and launched the career of Darcey Bussell, "then a 19-year-old plucked from the corps de ballet by the ailing choreographer, who was smitten with her long-limbed, open and honest dancing, a far cry from the then-traditional Royal Ballet ballerina look".

Art Talk by Mr M Pearce @ Hellenic Academy (7 February)

Hellenic is pleased to announce that the first Art Talk of 2013 will be given by Mr Mick Pearce the well known local architect who will be talking on the subject of Biomimicry. This is a process of design directly inspired by processes in nature. For instance you will have seen the Eastgate building in down town Harare, the architectural design was inspired by a termite nest. Mick will attempt to explain the process of Biomimicry with pictures of this and other buildings that he has designed in China, Australia as well as here in Zimbabwe.

Mick is just back from working in China where he was employed by the largest developer of cities in the world, China Vanke Ltd, as an architectural adviser on designing for climate change. This will be a highly popular and interesting talk.

Thursday, 7th February, at 5.30 in the Art Room. Hellenic Academy, 42-26 Basset Crescent, New Alexandra Park, Harare Refreshments will be served. No tickets required (voluntary donation on door).

A large concentration of Barn Swallow (Hirundo rustica) in Birmingham, UK Ross G. Cooper E-mail: rgcooperuk@yahoo.com

I would like to report a large concentration of Barn Swallow (Passeriformes, Hirundinidae, Hirundo rustica) in Birmingham in the Pype Hayes suburb on 16th October 2008. They were concentrated around trees lining Fazeley canal, adjacent to Kingsbury Road and appeared to be eating gnats and insects from the vegetation lining the canal. I estimated at least 200 birds. I am familiar with these birds from Zimbabwe and know that they breed in Africa and migrate further north during the winter months. Given the recent high temperatures experienced in England in recent times (17.1-14.0 max and 8-5 min C, October 2008), it possibly suggests that facts associated with global warming are encouraging the migration of more of these bird species into Europe. It was a welcome sight to see so many birds given the vulnerability of this species due to destruction of habitat. Given available manpower and time, it would be useful to pursue further investigations on the ecology and conservation of these species in the UK.
