Thirty-seven people came along to Geoff Park’s recent FOBIF walk in the Muckleford Forest. The focus was on birds and despite the large group it was possible to see and hear a fair range. These included Striated Thornbills, Weebills, Grey Strike Thrushes, Galahs, Grey Fantails, Rufus Whistlers and Brown Flycatchers. Many in the group were familiar with Geoff’s blog, Natural Newstead, and appreciated the opportunity to pick up some tips on how to find and identify birds as well as seeing some of his favourite spots.
The next walk is 16 September. We will be going to the south end of the Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. The walk will be led by Bernard Slattery. Click here for more details.
