Campbell Park nest workshop

Sun 16 November 2014 08:00am

Jack Holland

This will be a repeat of the very successful practical nest workshops held for the past ten years. This very informal outing has again 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 breeding behaviour. This will be followed by several hours putting this into practice, with participants looking for signs of nesting, etc.  This will also allow plenty of opportunity for bird watching.

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