This Saturday, 1st April in the Royal Botanic Gardens from 1pm. We’ll be at the lawn to the east of the Main Pond. Tigtog has some pictures of the location.
sigh! i wish i was there! i’ll bet the birding is fabulous, too.
Seethe with envy, Grrl. Out and proud mostly sacred ibis, pigeons, mynahs, ducks and seagulls. Around the quieter ponds, White-faced Herons. In the undergrowth and understorey plantings, finches and bulbuls. Superb Fairy Wrens. Sulphur crested cockatoos, lorikeets and rosellas, and lots and lots and lots of fruitbats.
And then there are the migratory birds. Of course, most of the birds that were recorded by the early colonists are no longer in the park.
Heh, I might be able to make that, though I’m not sure I really qualify as a blogger. Would be nice to meet some familiar names in the flesh.
Danny, sorry to overlook your comment – I’ve been a bit busy and haven’t checked Tim’s blog for a coupla days.
It’s not really “my” event I’m just the wrangler this time around, so I hope Tim doesn’t mind me mouthing off – but the more the merrier I reckon.
PS Danny – I grew up bushwalking although I’m now way too unfit. My dad at 70 could outwalk me with hardly a light sweat, being the dedicated Springwood Bushwalker he is. We could terrorise the others with threats of campfire singsongs…
