Just to add to Mark’s request…


As part of our preparation for the Twitchathon, could I perhaps ask those people that are out and about birding this coming weekend to jot down a list of birds you see wherever you go. A quick bird list would be appreciated, even if it’s just a visit to Campbell Park or Newline Quarry. Any coast lists will be most appreciated.


Any information can be emailed directly to Mark or myself (m("","aovers");">)


Thank you

Hi all,


As most people know COG is being represented in the twitchathon the weekend after next. The team had a meeting last night trying to pin down some sites where we may be able to pick up several species. As part of our searching we will be down on the south coast from near Nowra to about Moruya. Can anyone point us in the direction of the following on the coast - Bell Miner north of Moruya, Glossy Black-Cockatoo, Pied Cormorant, Azure Kingfisher, and closer to home, Scarlet and Flame Robin, especially if either occur near the top of the Clyde, a good spot for Diamond Firetail and Brown Songlark locally although we may get these out “west”. Finally does anyone know the whereabouts of the nesting Tawny Frogmouth in the botanic gardens. We would prefer this one to the one that Terry Gourlay has near his house as we are obliged to officially finish in the ANBG. Also, has anyone recently travelled the Shallow Crossing road that starts/ends at Nelligen and if so is there much along it? I drove this road many years ago and from memory it was quite good for birds. All help gratefully received. Remember it is your team so if you can, give us a hand.


Finally if you still want to sponsor the team drop me an email with either a pledge of a set donation or so much per species. We are aiming at about 200 species in the 24 hours but all sorts of factors can come into play.


Thanks in advance,
