Special event: Faansie Peacock on Waders

30 September

Faansie spent more than two years writing and painting for the production of his latest book: CHAMBERLAIN’S WADERS. He says: “I hope that my paintings reflect my passion and adoration for waders. I’ve tried to achieve a balance between a creative celebration of these birds, in their natural environments, and scientific accuracy.”

Faansie and family recently relocated to Langebaan on South Africa’s West Coast close to West Coast National Park, a global wader hotspot. Faansie boasts that he can now watch knots, godwits, and turnstones migrating over his house in Langebaan.

Please join us for a special event, as part of our club’s 70th-anniversary celebrations, where Faansie will share his passion for this fascinating but sometimes misunderstood group of birds.
Faansie will also have books for sale
