Morning Twitch at Highfield
‘Highfield’ is a 333 hectare property bounded by the Yaven Yaven Creek and Ellerslie Nature Reserve. Two-thirds of the property is under a conservation covenant protecting critically endangered Grassy Box Woodland and the plants and animals that depend on that habitat.
To date a total of 113 different birds have been observed on ‘Highfield’, many of them from the comfort of the front verandah, including the Regent Honeyeater, Crested Shrike–Tit, Brown Treecreeper, Black-chinned Honeyeater, Diamond Firetail, Hooded Robin, Speckled Warbler and Gang Gang.
Mason Crane, ecologist from the Australian National University will be on hand to help identify the woodland birds as well as explain the natural features of this landscape which supports them.
The walk will be followed by a festive morning tea so please come along to help Landcare celebrate the end of another successful year.
Further information can be found on the attached flier.
