Campbell Park nest workshop

Sun 13 November 2016 08:00am

Jack Holland

This will be a repeat of the very successful practical nest workshops held over the past eleven years.  As usual it will be a very informal outing which again has been timed to coincide with the peak of the breeding season.  The morning will start with the usual short presentation including tips on the types of nests built by different species of birds, and how to find nests or nesting behaviour.  This will be followed by several hours putting this into practice, with participants breaking into groups looking for breeding behaviour, signs of nesting etc.  This will also allow plenty of opportunities for bird watching.

This workshop is particularly suitable for beginners or those relatively new to bird watching, though more experienced members and repeat customers are also very welcome. Though every year has been different, we often don’t walk very far as there is usually is a “hot spot” where most of the breeding activity occurs. To participate, please contact Jack Holland (6288 7840) or by email on .

Meet at 8:00 am at the picnic tables at the far end of the car park.  Take Northcott Drive up to the start of the Campbell Park Offices, where you take the right fork and keep to the outside of the very large car park, skirting it until you get to the end.  Intending participants might also like to look at the Campbell Park map on the COG web site under the Maps, Forms and Lists button.  Please remember to take morning tea to have out in the field.
