The Society's Christmas Luncheon

The Society's annual Christmas luncheon which was held at the Caroni Bird Sanctuary on December 12th 2010 was a huge success; the weather was perfect along with the ambience which was just right. We had two visiting brilliant red Scarlet Ibis sitting on a branch in the mangrove for company. In all a grand time was had by every one.

Condolences

Our Sympathies go out to Savitri Mohammed on the death of her husband Dr. Shaik Nizam Mohammed.
