Two videos for those interested in finding out more about the amazing shore birds which fly annually from their breeding grounds in the Arctic Circle to summer in Australia, returning every year - flying a total of 30,000 kilometres a year.
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 may also be an all day outing to a more distant location. Bring along a pair of binoculars to gain more value and enjoyment from this activity.
