BirdLife Walking tour

CHIRP’s free walking tour on Wednesday November 27th will be an opportunity to see a variety of birds along the Campbell’s Creek Trail.

Jane Rusden, who is the convener of ‘BirdLife Castlemaine District’ will be the guide for this walk which is accessible for all abilities.

“There are plenty of birds to see along this stretch. Come along for the chance to see Eastern Yellow Robins and Honeyeaters including Fuscous, Yellow-Faced and New Holland varieties. This spot also usually has Red Wattlebirds, Whistlers, Galahs, Crimson Rosellas and Eastern Rosellas, as well as smaller birds such as Red-Browed Finches, Silver Eyes and Superb Fairy Wrens. We encourage you to bring binoculars, if you have them.”, says Jane Rusden.

 

When: 10am on November 27th

Where: Meet at the end of Lewis Drive in Castlemaine (near the Salvage Yard) for a gentle one-hour walk.

We recommend you wear suitable shoes & long pants as there may be snakes.

Don’t forget sun protection and bring drinking water.
