Description

North Central Catchment Management Authority Presents:

Breakfast with the Birds 2018


Join us at Hird Swamp for an early morning of bird watching, expert speakers and a light breakfast. Hird Swamp Wildlife Reserve is situated at Macorna North (about 15 minutes from Kerang). After recent deliveries of environmental water, the wetland has been home to thousands of waterbirds including Magpie Geese and Australasian Bittern.

We will also be running a photo competition with some great prizes. Categories include: Bird Portrait, Bird in Flight, Unusual Sighting or Threatened Species, Sunrise Splendour and Junior Photographer.

Cost: This is a FREE EVENT. Coffee, tea and a light breakfast will be provided.

Where: The event will be held at Hird Swamp, Macorna North. Due to limited car parking space at the event location, enter Hird Swamp at the southern end from Borella Road and follow the signs to the carpark. Participants will be transferred by bus from the car park to the event location.

RSVP: Registration is essential and places are limited. Please RSVP by 1 February via Eventbrite (search Breakfast with the Birds 2018) or by contacting the NCCMA on 5448 7124 or info@nccma.vic.gov.au

Bring: Bring a hat, water bottle, chair if required, binoculars & camera (optional). Please dress for the weather including long pants and enclosed footwear. There will be a coffee van on site; please bring your own travel mug if you have one to help reduce waste. Please contact the North Central CMA if you have any dietary requirements.

In the event of extreme weather conditions, the event may be cancelled.
