Field Outings

  • The Club holds field outings most weekends, and there are presently two mid-week outings each month. Field trips range from a half-day’s birding at local sites and to campouts. Accommodation on overnight trips varies from camping to motels. If you’re joining a field outing make sure you:
  • read the newsletter for further details and contact details of the leader.
  • bring something for morning tea and lunch.

TOTAL FIRE BANS AND NATIONAL PARK CLOSURES

Sydney Outings. It may be necessary to reschedule or cancel outings planned to be held in national parks if there is a total fire ban. Please check the website or contact the leader for information about whether the outing can go ahead in view of the bush fire threat.

Central Coast Outings. Outings may be cancelled on days of total fire bans. This will be determined on a case by case basis and will depend on the planned birding site being accessible and the potential risk. This decision will be made by the leader. If the outing is cancelled, it will be published on Central Coast Birders Facebook. If in doubt contact the outing leader.

 Campouts. It may be necessary to cancel campouts in national parks if there is a total fire ban.
