Dear Birders,
I spent Saturday as a volunteer guiding people around the newly opened Birds 
Australia Discovery Centre at Newington Armoury in the Sydney Olympic Park at 
Homebush. The Discovery Centre is open each weekend and one can use the 
opportunity to stroll freely through the grounds of the armoury and the 
surrounding Parklands.During the week the Armoury grounds are closed to the 
public however anyone interested in using the extensive BASNA library can do so 
by phoning the BA Sydney office and arranging access through security.

The Discovery Centre is intended as an information centre and educational 
facility for Birds Australia in Sydney. It also operates as the Sydney Office 
of Birds Australia and the Southern NSW and ACT Regional Group of BA (BASNA) 
and as a workplace for the BA project officers located in Sydney.

There is a most interesting display in the Discovery Centre at the moment 
dealing with the migration of Bar-tailed Godwits. The whole centre is well set 
up and I thoroughly recommend Sydney birders (and visiting interstate and 
overseas birders) include a visit to the Centre as part of a birding trip to 
the Sydney Olympic Park.
