AUSSIE BACKYARD BIRD COUNT
Thank you to everyone who supported our 2016 Aussie Backyard Bird Count BBQ in Wilkinson Park.
Although the day was threatening rain it remained dry, but a cold wind was blowing all morning – not a great day for bird watching. However, that didn't stop those residents who attended from enjoying being part of the Bird Count.
Check out the Bird Count results in late November at aussiebirdcount.org.au.
The weather may have been cold, but those who attended had warm insides from the sausage sandwiches or hot tea and coffee on offer at the BBQ.
This CASNG event was the only Aussie Bird Count Community Event held in the Hunter, and following its success, it will probably be held again next year.
Mandy McDonald from the Hunter Bird Observers Club did a fantastic job at identifying birds and keeping the participants enthusiastic about the Australia-wide bird count.
A big thank you to the CASNG members, and Mandy McDonald, who helped to make this event a successful contribution to the Aussie Backyard Bird Count.
