A walking tour of birds at Castlemaine Botanical Gardens

A free guided tour of birdlife at Castlemaine Botanical Gardens will be held on March 31 and everyone is invited to come along.

Jane Rusden, who is the convenor of the Castlemaine District branch of Birdlife, will lead the tour.

“The Castlemaine Botanical Gardens has water birds and some big parrots. We will also talk about the Powerful Owls but won’t see them as its not breeding season.”, said Jane.

“It’s a good opportunity for people to learn to identify birds that they may see in their garden. Bring your binoculars if you have some.”

The gentle hour-long stroll is organised by Castlemaine Health as part of their regular monthly walks. It is supported by Birdlife.

“We warmly welcome our regular participants and any new guests. It’s a great reason to head outdoors and enjoy some fresh air,” said Liza Shaw, Health Promotion Officer at Castlemaine Health.

The walk is suitable for all ages and abilities.
