Diaz Cross Bird Club
The Diaz Cross Bird Club was founded in 1973 by the Reverend Canon Michael Bands. Situated in the Eastern Cape, South Africa, the club has a branch in Kenton-on-Sea (on the coast between Port Elizabeth and East London) and in Grahamstown (about 130km inland from Port Elizabeth). The area is rich in flora and fauna, with various different climatic zones nearby. The club has regular outings and meetings which bring people into contact with local expertise and help promote an appreciation of birdlife as well as a better understanding of local ecosystems.
