Cloud 9 and Surrounds

Hi all,

Sounds like it was a nice winter walk last week with some new species seen, of note, the Cattle egrets!

Next month for something different, we will meet at Trout Creek between 3.30-4pm for a short afternoon walk before a BBQ dinner. Then the spotlights will come into use as we search for nocturnal birds which could bring us sightings of Masked Owls.

So, for carpooling, meet at the Bayside carpark at 3pm on WEDNESDAY 1ST AUGUST. Bring along something for the BBQ, a torch, warm clothing and a sense of winter adventure.

See you then!

Best birding wishes,
