Coming up on Tuesday 2 May 2017 - Visit to private property at Chesney Vale
Our May activity will be at John Lloyd and Frieda Andrews’ property at Chesney Vale, overlooking Winton Wetlands. We had a very enjoyable visit there last year, and we have been invited to return this year. Please meet at Barkly Street, on the old tennis courts behind Aldi, at 10am, on Tuesday 2 May. We will car pool from there. It will be a morning activity, but I’d encourage you bring your own picnic lunch, and maybe a mug, as it is a lovely spot to eat and chat after the birding activity. Wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars if you have them.
The Chesney Vale hills are home to a number of threatened woodland birds. Last year we found three of them on the property: Brown Treecreeper, Hooded Robin and Diamond Firetail, among the 30 plus species recorded. I look forward to seeing what turns up this time.
