Our next outing is on Saturday afternoon at 4pm on the 4th October at Toorbul. [Currently we have outings on the first Saturday of every month save January.] Toorbul is an excellent birding location on the east coast looking towards Bribie Island. There is a mix of woodland species but it is best known for migratory waders and a mix of mangrove species. Drive slowly around the town as there are large numbers of Eastern Grey Kangaroos.
Meet at 4pm at park opposite general store. Please remember to plan extra travel time to visit the Lagoon on the way in for Brolgas and perhaps other waders. We may travel to the north end first for Mangrove Kingfisher, Mangrove Gerygone etc before heading to the southern end for the waders. High tide is c 6pm so we should get good views of migratory waders as the tide rises with the light behind us.
Please consider bringing food for a BBQ as there are Electric BBQ's at the northern end of the esplanade or you can get basic takeaways from the general store. There is also camping at a Caravan Park if anyone would like to make a night of it.
