NB - Change of date The October outing will be held on the second Saturday of October [rather than the first] - 10 OCTOBER
The October outing will be a mini twitch!
My cunning plan involves starting at 7am at the state school in Mapleton.
Teams [minimum 2 – maximum of 4] would be decided only then and each team would have to quickly plan and participate in a day long birding programme that would finish at Mapleton [Tavern?] at 6pm.
If members are unwilling to commit to birding all day then I suggest they can quickly design a morning’s birding programme, again starting in Mapleton.
Obviously the plan would involve visiting as many different sites between the range and the coasts as possible. [For your interest high tide at Toorbul is 2pm on the day]. Participation fee for the day would be $20 per person with the funds going to the Grasswren project.
The rules of the twitch are that all recorded species must receive a 100% identification by a minimum of 50% of the team. Birds may be identified visually or by call / song.
There will be no prizes for winning our twitch but your name and photo will be immortalised on our blog!!
