In case you missed the earlier advice from Peter Waanders.

Looking for a good way to spend the Anzac Day long weekend?

The Australian Bird Study Association will hold its annual Scientific Day 
and AGM on the 26th April at Gluepot.

The proceedings will begin on Saturday 26 April at 0930hrs with a cuppa. A 
range of interesting speakers have been secured who will present updates 
on their research in Gluepot's brand-new Visitor Information Centre. 
Speakers begin at 10.00am and conclude at approx 3.30pm. There will be 
lunch between 12 and 1.

List of confirmed speakers:

  1.. Duncan Mackenzie - Welcome and the Management of Gluepot
  2.. David Baker-Gabb - Reason for Gluepot
  3.. Michael Hyde- Vegetation on Gluepot
  4.. Mike Clarke - Black-eared Miner recovery
  5.. Rhidian Harrington - Effect to birds on closing of watering points
  6.. Richard Donaghey - Study of nesting Robins etc. on Gluepot
  7.. Darren Baldyga - Bird - Vegetation association
  8.. Kevin Smith- Regent Parrot surveys

Afternoon tea will be at 3:30pm followed by the ABSA AGM. Subsequently 
attendees will have the opportunity for a guided inspection of Gluepot 
buildings and amenities for researchers and rangers,  or they can choose 
to set up camp.

At 6.30pm the ABSSA Annual Dinner will be held. This time of year the calm 
autumn evenings are ideal for informal post-dinner drinks and mingling 
with fellow birders and researchers.

The next day, Sunday 27 April attendees have the opportunity to join 
Richard Donaghey who has kindly agreed to take a group out banding 
Southern Scrub-robins, or Wally Klau who will be banding Striated 
Grasswrens. Or if you'd rather go birdwatching this time of year is ideal.

Conference registration $25.00 per person. This includes lunch, morning 
and afternoon tea.
Conference dinner is $20.00 per person.
Sunday banding, cuppa and packed lunch $15.00 per person
Registration before 12th April please so that catering can be arranged.
