Apollo/Naas Rd intersection and Top Naas Rd

Wed 17 August 2022 09:00am

Sandra Henderson

Meet at 9am at the Namadgi Visitor Centre carpark. From there we’ll carpool. There is limited space for parking in the Naas Rd/Top Naas Rd area, so the fewer cars the better. Bring a mask with you – wearing a mask in a car with others is a very wise precaution at present.

Bring water, wear sturdy shoes.

Maximum 16 attendees (so register early!).

The area has a number of special species at present, so we’ll hope for Brown Treecreepers, Hooded and Flame Robins, Black-shouldered Kites, Southern Whiteface, Jacky Winter….

Registration essential, to Sandra at shirmax2931@gmail.com and please register at least 24 hours ahead of the outing, with your name and phone number, and name and number of an emergency contact.


Post event report

This birding hotspot was not living up to its reputation until I suggested we move on. That seemed to be the signal for all the expected species to come out of hiding.  The first was the Restless Flycatcher, which eventually showed well. A pair of Hooded Robins, a group of Diamond Firetails, several Flame Robins and some Southern Whiteface were seen by most, and about half the group heard the distinctive call of the Brown Treecreeper.
