JUNE 2021

 

THURSDAY – 17 JUNE 2021 – (19:30) – ZOOM Meeting

SPEAKER: GERALD WINGATE

Topic: “Beautiful AND Beneficial’ Birds

Gerald has been observing birds for many years and has been ‘watching’ what the various species were doing whilst going about their daily routine activities. He will illustrate his talk with his photos of local species to indicate how they provide many ecologically valuable services. Your appreciation of birds will surely be extended beyond their attractive plumages. Gerald has been a member of the TBC for many years, and enjoys helping the TBC ‘Ringing Unit’ with their valuable work.

The TBC have been doing these counts for nearly 30 years. Valuable information is gained. The mouth of the Bot River opened to the sea on 10 May 2021, so this makes for interesting observations. The count consists of 5 teams covering the Lagoon. Contact Kevin to join a team.
