Maintaining something of a tradition for first excursion of the year, our local BirdLife group (8 participants) today visited Geham National Park.
Over the King’s birthday long weekend five of us stayed at the Myall Park Botanic Gardens and did surveys there and in surrounding areas of importance.
All up it was a fantastic long weekend with some really great birding!
On a fine but warm and humid Saturday our first outing for 2023 was to Geham National Park.
Our second excursion to Ravensbourne National Park as the Darling Downs group took place in balmy weather and spirits were high after so many trip cancellations over the past year or so due to wet weather.
Lockyer National Park is a lovely little national park near Helidon in the Lockyer Valley. It didn’t give up its secrets easily, but it’s definitely a park we’ll be visiting more often.
Cold and windy winter conditions but still some interesting sightings!
The Palms is a tiny patch of rainforest surrounded by farmland and woodland just north of Cooyar.
It was a cold morning (four degrees) when we set off but it turned out to be a very enjoyable and eventful morning.
Ravensbourne National Park consists mainly of rainforest with some sections of emerging eucalypt forest as well. This was our first group excursion into a rainforest area and it didn’t disappoint.
