oin Society for Conservation Biology UQ Chapter and friends for a guided bird walk by the wonderful Professor Hugh Possingham at Gold Creek Reservoir. This time of year is exceptional for birds moving north to escape the cold. Keep your eye out for abundant Grey Fantails, Golden Whistlers and Rose Robins!
Meet at 6.20am for a 6.30am start at the carpark and facilities at the end of Gold Creek Road. The duration of this walk is flexible – attendees can stay for as long as they like – and we will break for morning tea. The full circuit at a bird watches pace could take us to late morning, so commit to as little or as much of this time as you like.
Bring a water bottle, hat, sunscreen and some morning tea/snacks. If you have binoculars please bring these too. This event is also very accommodating for photographers, so if this is a good opportunity for you to do some wildlife photography, please bring along the equipment you need.
Click attending so we can accommodate numbers, and ensure a thorough list for contact tracing. If there are any questions, please post or contact Courtney Melton directly.
This bird walk will complement a free proceeding workshop on bird identification by Professor Richard Fuller. This workshop is set to be held Friday 21st of May, 2-4pm at the University of Queensland St Lucia Campus – find out more on the event page
