A job well done - Abigail Ramudzuli (Local News)
 
Many of us will know Abigail from the bird outings and meetings she attended the last year or two. Abigail graduated with a BSc (Honours) degree in Zoology from the University of Limpopo on 17 April 2018. As part of her degree, Abigail investigated possible mechanisms responsible for substrate colour-matching in larks. Not only did she pass her research project with a distinction, she also received distinctions for two of the four theory modules!

Abigail Ramudzuli   

Abigail recently presented the results of her honours research project at the Learn About Birds (LAB) Conference which was part of Flock on the West Coast 2018. Here she received the runner-up prize for the Best Student presentation at the conference.

Abigail decided to spread her wings and leave her nest at Turfloop. She registered for an MSc at the Percy Fitzpatrick Institute of African Ornithology at the University of Cape Town. For her MSc she is attempting to unravel the migration patterns of Woodland Kingfisher through the analysis of moult and stable isotopes.

On behalf of the club, I wish to congratulate Abigail on her excellent work so far and we wish her all the best with her studies. We are looking forward to a talk at the club once you have your results.
