Birders, please take extreme care when going to Golden Harvest Park to try and find the Honey Buzzard and Half Collared Kingfisher. Two lady birders were attacked there by a knife wielding man yesterday afternoon, and robbed of a cellphone. An attempt by the perpetrator to cut the binocular harnass from the one lady's body failed when her companion started screaming. The man ran away. A Chubb security vehicle was parked a small distance away, whose occupant was fast asleep, and all attempts to wake him up for help, failed.
The two birders are shaken but unharmed.

Hi Waldens,

Sad to hear of the attack at the park!

I have to admit I would never walk around there alone as I have never felt at ease.

Glad they escaped without physical harm!

Cheers,
Gordon

This incident apparently happened on Friday. I really feel that
something should be done about this before somebody is killed out
there. These thugs seems to be violent (stabbing Gerrit with a knife)
