Meetings for 2017

1 June 2017

Short talk - George Chapman: A week birding in New Caledonia. George will share his experience of birdwatching in three selected locations in New Caledonia in the course of a leisurely week's holiday. Highlights included the critically endangered Crow Honeyeater and the New Caledonian national bird, the enigmatic Kagu.

Long talk - Jon Norling: Australian seabirds. To many birders, seabirds represent an enigmatic group, with many claiming it is too rough, they get seasick, they won't be able to ID them, etc. Yet this group represents more than 15% of all Australian birds and boat trips offer an excellent chance of seeing rarities. Jon's presentation will help to demystify this group, covering all of the families and many of the species relying upon his extensive photo collection.
