Hello subscribers
Thanks to the excellent response last week we managed to fill the buses.
Unfortunately 1 intending participant has had to cancel, so there is still an opportunity to join us.
Many thanks
Jack Holland

Hello subscribers,
To let you know that there are still spots available on the above – further details are below.
Jenny Bounds and I have been out a couple of times looking at suitable spots to visit as well as trying to locate some potential target birds.
We will be revisiting some of these over the next week and firming up the program.
Please let me know if you are interested in joining us – a good time is assured.

Early Spring Mystery bus trip; Wednesday 6 September – Day outing


Jenny Bounds and Jack Holland are planning another bus trip for this date.  Some aspects are expected to be the same as previous trips, ie cost of $20 for transport by two 12-seater buses, starting at 8 am, and running until mid afternoon (please bring morning tea and lunch).  However, as it’s a week day it allows consideration of destinations which would not normally be visited on a weekend bus trip.  The point of departure will also be different and we’ve been looking at relatively central places are accessible by public transport and where the all day parking is free.  


Current places being investigated include adjacent to Cooleman Court on the western side of Liardet St Weston that abuts Streeton Drive, or the part of the Curtin shops car park adjacent to the Statesman Hotel.  However, our attention has been drawn to the much larger, more central, free car park off Macgregor St Deakin behind (to the W of) the Fitness First Gym which is favoured over the latter.  Once the day’s itinerary is more settled intending participants will be advised of the meeting spot.


To keep it fresh we are again looking at changing the specific objectives of this trip.  These are still being discussed but we again plan to visit some spots where participants may not normally go and will be able to see some interesting birds.  The final itinerary (and point of departure/parking) will depend on some rekkies beforehand, as well as which birds have been reported around the time.


If you are interested in participating in this popular outing, please contact Jack Holland (6288 7840 H or by E-mail on ) to book your seats.  Could you please advise when booking if you will be using public transport to get to the meeting point, and from where?
