After discussion with members of the group, we have a new date for our final activity for the year. We will meet in the car park of the Seniors building at 9.30am on Thursday 9 November, for a birding walk along the Honeysuckle Creek track in Violet Town. We will then drive to a nearby property to eat our picnic lunch while enjoying the birds in a lovely garden setting. Please bring your lunch and a thermos or drink, a folding chair and binoculars.
If you would like to know more about birds in the Benalla district and would appreciate help in identifying birds, this group could be for you. The program involves mainly morning walks in local habitats rich in a range of bird life such as Reef Hills, Winton Wetland and Benalla Lake. There will also be one or two all day outings to more distant areas such as the Warby Ranges. Bring along a pair of binoculars to gain more value and enjoyment from this activity.
If you are new to the birdwatching group, check out Birdwatching - Notes for Partici-pants - you will also find a video which may assist you to adjust your binoculars in Kathy's post.
