Tim Low to speak on “Where Song began”

Tim Low, author of the acclaimed “Where Song Began” will speak to the topic at the October club meeting. Says Sean Dooley of the Sydney Morning Herald, “Tim Low is the rare author who is able to turn complex and sophisticated research into a form digestible to the general reader without ‘dumbing down’ the science.”

Key Biodiversity Area (KBA) Workshops

You are invited to a free Workshop on Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs) on  August 5-6, 2017.



This workshop is aimed at KBA guardians, KBA survey volunteers and members of bird clubs and others who want to learn more about KBAs.

The workshop will be hosted by BirdLife Shoalhaven and will be held at St Georges Basin Community Health Centre, 21 Meriton Street, St Georges Basin, on the NSW South Coast, which is about 3 and a half hours drive south of Sydney. The programme for the Workshop is available on the Birding NSW website together with a Registration Form. On the first day topics covered include an introduction to KBAs and workshops on how to use Birdata, bird surveys, how to complete the KBA Health Check forms and how to spread the word about KBAs in communities. On the second day, survey techniques will be tested in the field at Booderee National Park Botanic Gardens. Please remember to download the Birdata app to your phone before the Workshop.

Guardians of KBAs and their survey supporters have priority for attendance at this workshop. While we will have room for up to 80 people on Day 1, the numbers on the Field Day on Day 2 will be limited to 40 people.

Please complete the Registration Form (see below) and return it to Elisabeth Karplus as soon as possible and not later than July 1, 2017. A final programme will be circulated closer to the date of the Workshop.
