Atlas bash to Loeriesfontein, Northern Cape, 8-11 August 2013

Save the date: 20-21 July 2013, SABAP2 workshop, Port Elizabeth

Atlas bash to Loeriesfontein, Northern Cape, 8-11 August 2013

This comes from Garth Shaw, one of our avid Western Cape atlasers...

"Flower season in the Northern Cape is a bucket list thing to do! What better way to enjoy the flowers than to atlas a couple of pentads in flower season! Join the Loeriesfontein bash over the long weekend of 8-11 August and contribute a couple of virgin pentads to the SABAP2 database.

The bash will be based in Loeriesfontein as there are a high number of virgin pentads in the region, and there is a good road network making atlasing possible even in sedan type vehicles. Willing atlasers will also be able to "sleep a night on the road" by joining the group on the Thursday evening, but then "sleeping out" on Friday night either in a neighbouring town, or by camping on farmers ground (obviously with the farmers permission) before joining the group again on the Saturday evening.

Although pentad lists might not be long, the area is potentially host to a number of specials including Namaqua and Cinnamon-breasted Warblers, Black-eared Sparrowlark, Red, Sclater’s and Stark’s Larks, Tractrac Chat, Burchell’s Courser, Ludwig’s Bustard, as well as most of the typical karoo species like Karoo Korhaan, Karoo Long-billed Lark, Karoo Eremomela amongst others.

This might be a good chance for out-of-towners to push their atlasing life list that little bit higher!"

If you are interested in joining the bash, please send an email to Garth at There is also a Facebook events page for this bash - click here to take a peek.

See you in Loeriesfontein!
