Getting close now! Registrations closed at the end of January, and we're looking forward to seeing about 90 people at the Hunter Wetlands Centre in Newcastle at the end of this month.

This event went very well. Except for the mozzies, which turned up everywhere, except for the pre- and post-event pelagic trips. But who said birding was meant to be easy!


We had tremendous support from the local Hunter Bird Observers Club, who provided leaders for outings before, during and after the event. The Hunter Wetlands Centre facilities were great for our workshop sessions on Saturday and Sunday, and even the storm on Sunday evening did little to dampen our spirits, although some camping at Stockton Beach Tourist Park had some tidying up to do after it :) The opening and closing dinners at the Spoonbill Cafe were enjoyed by most participants and a number of partners, with about 100 attendees at each of these.


More reports to come on our website, and in the April newsletter; the next few newsletters will also contain content from most of the workshop presentations.


Personally, my highlight was the pelagic trip on Thursday - the first pelagic I've done. Only about 10 species, but the only one I'd seen previously was the Wandering Albatross - and that was somewhat of a rarity there at this time of year.

Thanks Rob,

Most bird camps I've been to have been very good, so I hope the photo camps can continue.

I've just returned yesterday from a two day Shorebirds survey on the Coorong. Some of the waders have already headed north, but it was still interesting along the shores and on the water.

The Coorong is a magical place which just seems to get better with each visit.
