Unfortunately the details for the above are not yet on the COG web site as Sue Lashko is still away, though they are in the November Gang-gang which came out earlier this week.


My apologies to anyone who may have been confused, and the details are now copied below.


If you are intending to come, please let me know so that I can forward you the notes beforehand.


Many thanks

Sunday 10 November — Campbell Park, Morning Nest workshop

This outing will be a repeat of the very popular and practical nest workshops held over the past sixteen years.  As usual it will be a very informal outing which has been timed to coincide with the peak of the breeding season.  The morning will start with the usual very short presentation, including tips on the types of nests built by different species of birds, and how to find nests or nesting behaviour.  This will be followed by several hours putting this into practice, with participants looking for breeding behaviour, signs of nests etc.  This will also allow plenty of opportunities for bird watching. 

The workshop is particularly suitable for beginners or those relatively new to bird watching, though more experienced members and repeat customers are also very welcome.  While every year has been different, we often don’t walk very far as there is usually is a “hot spot” where most of the breeding activity occurs.  To participate, please contact Jack Holland (6288 7840) or by E-mail on .

Meet at 8:00 am at the picnic tables at the far end of the car park.  Take Northcott Drive up to the start of the Campbell Park Offices, where you take the right fork and keep to the outside of the very large car park, skirting it until you get to the end.  Intending participants might also like to look at the Campbell Park map on the COG web site under the Maps, Forms and Lists button.  Please remember to take morning tea which we will have out in the field.
