You all know that the Murrumbidgee Field Naturalists are rebuilding their site, right? Takes time and effort and not a few volunteers.
Luckily, some are stepping up to the challenge. Neville, for instance has compiled his bird lists from over the last 20 years to give us a useful list for Narrandera. And what a list. Neville has included details of the status of each bird so you can easily tell if you have a rare one or not.
The question of rarity of birds is an interesting one. Locally, we can see Major Mitchell Cockatoos quite easily (unless it is Twitchathon Day - but that is another story) but for visitors to the area, they are a rarity. Personally I love them and cant resist stopping to watch them as they fly by.
There are plans for more updates to the site, so check back and enjoy.
The Murrumbidgee Field Naturalists are rebuilding their site. The old site was starting to look very old and contained out of date information.
The first few pages that are up are club related. You can find details of the committee and the executive and a brief calendar of events.
Our Stomp a Swamp booklet is also now available in PDF format. This innovative little publication is an eductional tool for primary school teachers who wish to teach their students about wetland habitat in our area. The booklet focuses on Campbell’s and Nericon Swamps just out of Griffith in NSW and is the best publication of its type.
The club’s newest initiative is a Bird Routes brochure for Griffith NSW. Again, a PDF document, it can be downloaded and used as a handy guide for visitors to our area. We have plans to make it into a printed publication and available via Visitor’s Centres and the like, but we are in need of finance to do this.
We have big plans for the redevelopment of the site, so check back often and see what is happening.
