Mini Twitch

Kings Beach - habiatat of Wandering Tattlers, Pied Cormorants and Sooty Oystercatchers
Osprey nest site
Ran our mini twitch yesterday and 8 people [two teams] participated raising some $160 for the Carpentarian Grasswren project. We began at 7-10 and finished at 6pm sp it was a tiring but enjoyable day. The winning team scored 147 spp and the team that come second [second not last] managed 101 spp. Some wonderful birds were recorded and it was an excellent efforts, particularly given 'spur of the moment' planning. Hopefully more will support it next year.

One team chased birds between Toorbul and Maroochydore North Shore and finally through to the forests around Mapleton.
