Hi Birders,
 The Gould league Bird Study Camp Club of NSW held their annual camp this year near Tathra on the Far South Coast of NSW during the period 19 -27 October 2000. Tathra is located near the mouth of the Bega River and is a good location for freshwater and estuarine wetlands, ocean beaches and coastal heaths and forests.
