I have been a Western leopard toad volunteer in Cape Town for the past eight years, doing the Princess Vlei and Little Princess Vlei areas as well as helping in the Constantia areas, where the toads occur, when needed.

We have been told that there could possibly be a small toad population in your town and I am hoping to spend a week there during the winter, when it's breeding season for these toads (i.e. the males go to a water body to call the females, where they mate then return "home"—your gardens!) to actively look for them.

'Flight for Birders' was developed to assist novices and experienced birdwatchers to become involved in birdwatching in a practical and sustainable way. Basic steps in the identification of birds will be highlighted and the identification of garden birds, water birds, birds of prey and more difficult species such as swallows, waders and 'little brown jobs' will be discussed systematically.
