Cattle Egret and Heron Research
As part of her Masters research, Jennifer Cele is investigating the roost sites, habitat use and feeding habits of these species.
She is registered in the School of Life Sciences, University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg Campus under the supervision of Prof. Colleen Downs.
To better understand the current status of these birds in our province, UKZN would greatly appreciate reports of any sightings of Cattle Egrets and various heron species, especially, but not limited to, their roosting and feeding sites on farmlands and in urban areas of KwaZulu-Natal.
Please contact Jennifer Cele email: JCele01@gmail.com (cc Prof Downs email@example.com) or telephone 033-2605127 (during office hours). “
