David Hollands is one of Australia’s best known bird photographers. His immaculate and well-written books on Australian night birds, birds of prey and kingfishers are a must-have for all naturalists and bird-enthusiasts (click here for more info). In 2012, after 12 years of preparation and trips across the country, David Hollands published an extraordinarily detailed and beautiful book about Waders – The Shorebirds of Australia. It was prepared in conjunction with renowned wader specialist Clive Minton, and includes species such as dotterels, sandpipers, lapwings, snipes, godwits and plovers.
The Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club is very lucky to have David as guest speaker at its July club meeting. Those who have heard David speak in the past, and have seen his slide shows, will know that you’re in for a treat.
Everyone is welcome (including families), and there is no cost for attendance. The meeting starts at 7.30pm on Friday 11 July 2014 in the hall behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St, Castlemaine (next to the Art Gallery & Museum). Hope to see you there.
On the following day (Saturday 12 July), the club excursion will be to Ellis Falls, weather dependent. The excursion will depart from the Octopus building on Duke St (opposite the Castle Motel) at 1.30pm sharp.
