A Valentines Day Tryst

He Who Must Be Obeyed was rather perturbed on Valentine's Day to get an invitation from his brazen wife to join her for a mysterious trip into the countryside. His eyes widened in horror as a few select items were packed into the car boot !!

Two deck chairs, a picnic basket, A BLANKET !! Good heavens what indeed was this little excursion all about !!

We headed off up the Old Esigodini Road, turned right at an old Mine turn off and carried on down that road for quite a way. It was getting towards six p.m. The countryside was sodden with the recent rains and the sky was darkening prematurely with the heavy cloud cover. He Who Must Be Obeyed was most relieved when we got to the Mine Gate where his little wife did not drag him off into the soaking wet grass for a Valentine's romp, but instead directed him into the How Mine compound.

Setting the deck chairs up in a romantic little spot between the mine store and the mine butcher shop, accompanied by the sweet whispers of a horde of little bedraggled children looking for sweets, He Who Must Be Obeyed refused categorically to lie on the blanket but sat in his chair and accepted gratefully an ice cold beer.

The scene had been set, not for anything more than a secret valentine day visit to the grove of trees where the European Swallows were massing in their millions for their impending migration to the northern hemisphere. !!

It was an absolutely amazing experience something we will both never forget.

One of Bulawayo's best kept secrets but something that should be shared by all folk who respect nature and its incredible mysteries. The European Swallow is a diminutive little bird measuring in length about 18 cm. It's reddish throat bordered by a broad dark band distinguishes this species from all other swallows. The European Swallow breeds in Europe but it migrates south to India and Africa. According to bird fundi Wally Lacey these incredible little birds used to mass in the Sauerstown Area, but since 1996 they have moved to a tiny grove of gum trees near a dam in the Mine Compound.

The locals know exactly where the gum tree grove is, they look askance at the motley collection of strange bird enthusiasts who gather at dusk to observe this amazing sight as millions upon millions of the swallows gather at this time of the year to join forces for their annual migration.

The first arrivals from Europe arrive in Southern Africa after their 12 and a half thousand km journey, in early September. During the period October to March swallows are fairly common in Zimbabwe while winter record are rare. Birds ringed in Southern Africa have been recovered from as far afield as Ireland and Siberia.

The fastest recorded flight is a Johannesburg ringed bird recovered after 34 days later 12000 kms away !! The longest recorded distance was 12480 km and the oldest age 70 months.

Now the blanket was going to be used for the innocent purpose of lying on our backs while watching the swallows come in to roost, to save one from getting a stiff neck ! It was an awesome sight, the sky was literally considerably darkened with the layer upon layer of the swallows. They seemed to come into roost in a most orderly fashion. I am not lying when I say there were millions. The layers seemed to go up into an incredibly high altitude where one had to squint to see as swarm after warm, layer after layer, flew in with the speed of light, to land in this little grove of trees.

As more and more birds arrived, the noise level increased considerably as the birds squabbled and twittered their way into finding an available empty space on each bird littered branch.

The noise was so loud that it could be likened to the noise made by the Victoria Falls, as millions of tiny birds gather for safety in these giant gums which must literally have been groaning under the weight of the birds.

What was also amazing were the amount of raptors that has gathered to feast amongst this the dense gathering of swooping, swarming swallows. We saw no less that five peregrine falcons darting, swooping, stooping and creating havoc amongst the masses. Wally tells of sightings of Wahlbergs Eagles, Bataleurs, and the Western Red-Footed Kestrel all on the hunt during this amazing black seething incredible mass of nature.

As the dusk gathered a raptor which we could not identify swooped into the grove of trees, his chances of grabbing a tasty meal very high indeed, and the little ginger cat that lives in the butchery roof was having a wonderful time, hoisting itself up the trees and causing havoc with the swallows.

According to the experts the birds usually leave on their incredible journey to their northern summer feeding grounds sometime around the middle of February, so you may not be lucky enough to see them this year, but hopefully they will be be back next year and you too can invite your Man for a valentines tryst with a difference !!

Watchdog !!

Five extraordinary animals in heroic battles against the odds, Dynasties, the most intimate and intense stories of their kind ever told.
This week a colony of emperor penguins in Atka Bay try to keep themselves alive through the winter.
'"Dynasties" just goes on impressing until the world runs out of adjectives. The emperor penguin show was elegiac, majestic and tragic in equal measure.'' [Observer]

4. Beryl: When Elizabeth and Philip throw a grand party for their 10th anniversary, both Margaret and the new Prime Minister experience romantic tribulations...

Admission: $3.00 [free to Film members]

Friday 1 February at 7.00 p.m. Berlioz: Benvenuto Cellini
Hector Berlioz, perhaps the greatest of French composers, died 150 years ago on 8 March 1869 and will be celebrated throughout the year!
'Benvenuto Cellini' is a wonderful work combining romance, excitement, violence, comedy and spectacle. Returning to it years after initial production debacles, Berlioz said that he would 'never again find such verve and Cellinian impetuosity, nor such a variety of ideas'.
'Elder conducts a thrillingly vibrant and entirely idiomatic account..Gilliam's extraordinary eye for visual fantasy, cartoonish comedy and endless japes, meanwhile, matches the music surprisingly well..Osborn has all the vocal verve and dash to make the devil-may-care sculptor the constant centre of attention. Mariangela Sicilia uses her fearless, technically brilliant vocalism to sustain his beloved Teresa's vibrant personality.. Altogether a musical and visual treat. [Opera]
'I don't think the musical performances, soloists, chorus, orchestra and directing could possibly be bettered.....One of the best opera productions I have ever seen.' [Amazon]

'Captivating.' [Variety]
' A triumph. [Hollywood Reporter]
Admission: $3.00 [free to Film members]

Friday 8 February at 7.00 p.m. Funny Lady
Barbra Streisand's 1975 follow-up to her star-making 1968 vehicle 'Funny Girl' is a lot more worthwhile than most movie sequels. 'Funny Girl' was a fanciful retelling of the first forty years or so in the life of fabled comedienne Fanny Brice and 'Funny Lady' picks up where the first film leaves off, following Fanny into the 1940s. Far more sophisticated and imperious than she'd been in 'Funny Girl', Streisand's magnetic performance compensates for her character's decreased charm. One superb sequence involves a disastrous out-of-town try-out for one of Fanny's stage vehicles, replete with collapsing sets and a runaway bull!
'A much deserved sequel to the first movie. Barbara Streisand again amazes with her amazing acting and singing skills. James Caan is also exceptional in this movie as Fanny's love interest. [Rotten Tomatoes]
'"Funny Lady" is a better movie than "Funny Girl". It has heart and soul... James Caan gives a sweet, understated performance in the face of Hurricane Barbra..[IMDb]

Heather Margret Finch (nee Stokes)
We are sad to announce that Heather Margret Finch (nee Stokes) passed away suddenly on Friday 18 January at Glenfield Hospital, Leicester, UK, aged 72. She leaves behind her husband Phil and sons Glen and Rory.

Heather Margret Finch (nee Stokes)
The Memorial Service for the late Heather Margret Finch (nee Stokes) will be held at 11am Tuesday 29 January at Christ Church Beckenham. Address is 1A Christ Church Rd, Beckenham BR3 3LE UK.


I mourn the passing of Elspeth (Elspy to me) She and I grew up together in Bulawayo from the age of 2 yrs. We went to separate schools in Senior School, and then diverged after that. She became a Physiotherapist and married and moved to England. Her younger daughter became my surrogate daughter and then we were reunited in 1982 when she was employed to run the Workman's Compensation Rehab Centre. Elspeth and I roamed the Matopos together for many years discovering forgotten or unknown caves and paintings, and she wrote a book chronicling many of those...'Legacy on the Rocks'. After that she conducted a survey of the Southern Ground Hornbills, now gravely endangered. This work has been chronicled in Ostrich Ornithological Publications.
Love to both Sarah and Charlotte and Elspy's husband and grandchildren
With love from Val

Friends and Family of the Late Nellie Jansen Van Vuuren, who passed away on 3 January, 2019, in Richards Bay, please be advised that the Memorial Service will take place at the Dutch Reformed Church, on Tuesday 29 January, 2019 at10.00 am

She will be sadly missed by her daughter, Claire (Arnold, Andrew and James) and her Son, Simon (Kirsty and Meghan)

19) Seeking Friends

I have been researching my mother's family and came across a rather colourful sounding character by the name of Aston Redrup who according to family legend, built a castle in Bulawayo.

My research into this has yielded very little until an acquaintance of mine from Zimbabwe suggested I contact you. Of you would be able to provide any photos of the castle, stories or memories of people who may have seen it, visited it or know of its fate I would be extremely grateful.

Yours Sincerely

A J Colby-Derwent
