A reminder to all COG members signed up for the blitz
tomorrow and/or Sunday – let’s see how much of the Territory we can
cover, and how many species, and breeding species, we can locate. It will be
interesting to compare the results with last year’s, given the very
different conditions. Do remember to record all the participants in your group,
and to get your datasheets in promptly afterwards.
We have just had the “all clear” from the Namadgi
ranger in charge over the weekend – so those doing their blitzing efforts
behind the locked gates have his blessing to enter, on the conditions agreed
upon. And please don’t forget to let me know when you get back safely!
And if you can’t get out and do a major survey, we
would welcome 20-min, 2-ha surveys from your local park or oval – every contribution
helps. Good birding all. b
