Birder’s Corner

Roberts Creek Rd 8 May 2023

On the 8th May, 4 of us went to the green tea farm area on Mt Porepunkah Road. It was a bit cool to begin with but we were in the sun for most of the time. 

A list of birds can be found through the eBird list on eBird Australia Checklist – 8 May 2023 – 227 Mount Porepunkah Road, Bright, Victoria, AU (-36.711, 146.97) – 25 species

We birded for over an hour and saw 25 species but the cold was probably reducing the number around.

Coffee at the Riverdeck was nice to finish up with.

Winton Wetland 24 April 2023

11 u3a members went to Winton Wetlands on the 24th April. The weather was warm, sunny and no wind so excellent all around. We went to Nason Springs on the Wang side of the Warby ranges to stretch legs and look at the Turquoise Parrots and got fleeting looks at them. Then we went across the range and past most of the wetland to Mt Meg Conservation Area across the road. This spot can be a bit hit and miss and this time was only so-so. Going to the main wetland sites we started with morning tea at the boat ramp then up Boggy Creek and on to Green’s Hill for lunch and a walk. Finally we went to the Duck Pond. We stopped briefly at Nason Springs on the way back.
