To complement Friday night’s presentation on wading waterbirds by David Hollands (click here), Saturday’s excursion will be to the Harcourt Reservoir (also often referred to as the Barker’s Creek Reservoir). This is consistently one of the best local wetlands for diverse and abundant waterbird sightings. Some of the highlights in recent years have been Plumed Whistling-ducks, Great Crested Grebes, Great Egrets and Blue-billed Ducks.
The excursion will leave at on Saturday 14 April at 1.30pm sharp from the car park in front of Octopus building on Duke St (opposite the Castle Motel). Members and visitors all welcome, and there is no cost. Bring along a drink and snack for the all-important afternoon break! Also recommended that you bring your binoculars, bird book and spotting scope if you have one. There will be opportunities for car-pooling. Hope that you can join us.
