Liverpool Plains western section (Kerringle State Forest; Tambar Springs;
Weekend of 15th & 16th December
WHAT IS REQUIRED?
The fieldwork involves surveying areas of public lands using
the Birds Australia Atlas methods, either 2-hectare/20 minute searches or 500
metre area searches. Some experience with identifying woodland birds likely to
occur in the region by oral and visual means would obviously be an advantage.
Enthusiasm is essential.
In general, accommodation is up to the preference of each volunteer.
Accommodation in the Liverpool Plains region ranges from camping at State
Forests, Nature Reserves, stock routes, Caravan Parks etc, to motel/hotel style
accommodation at Gunnedah, Tamworth, Curlewis, Quirindi, Werris Creek etc. NRMA
accommodation guides may provide further details of suitable accommodation
within the region.
