Monthly Meetings in Person!

The Committee is delighted to announce that we will be back to face-to-face Club meetings from 7th June 2022. Speakers for June, July and August will be in person rather than by Zoom. We will no longer be recording the sessions as there have been few visitors to the website to access the recordings.
Location: Henry Carmichael Theatre, The Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts, Level 1, 280 Pitt St Sydney. Starting at 7.30 pm.

The next three presentations will be:
2 Aug ‘Why so many partial Migrants? Dr Ken Chan
6 Sep ‘Threatened species in the NSW 2019-20 Bushfires’. Dr Golo Maurer
4 Oct ‘Bush Stone-curlew release at Mulligan’s Flat ACT’. Dr Shasona Rapley

Following that, the presenters will advise their availability to attend at the theatre or speak by Zoom. It is unclear at this stage whether we can arrange for others to participate by Zoom. Please watch the club website or the monthly emailed Birding Bulletin for details. Note that newsletter information might be out of date for late changes.

We encourage as many members as possible to continue our tradition of attending the Club Meetings with family and friends to enjoy the company and the speakers!

The first tracking of at-sea movements for the White Tern.

 

Guest Speaker at the 5 July meeting, Nicholas Carlile, will present the first tracked movements of the tropical White Tern, using Global Location Sensors (GLS), from a breeding colony on Lord Howe Island. Often photographed for their nesting on tree branches, without a nest, this small tern has many intriguing attributes. This talk gives some insights into this little known species.

 

Nicholas Carlile is a Senior Scientist in Conservation Science, Science, Economics and Insights Division | Department of Planning and Environment and Adjunct Senior Researcher, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania & School of Environmental Sciences, Charles Sturt University; Associate, Biological Sciences at Monash University

In case you missed the presentation of prizes for last year’s photo competition . . . .

Here is a video displaying the top ten images and the prize winners:

 

and yes, there are more than ten images in the top ten.  So good were the images that the judges had a hard time discriminating them.

Many thanks to the judges who gave generously of their time and expertise.

Congratulations to the winners and to all of the photographers for such wonderful images.
