AGM and presentation on native wild birds of the Sutton district

The wild native birds of the Sutton district: species, trends, conservation, data capture & information resources. On 12 February 2019 at 8 PM David McDonald, a keen birder based in Wamboin, and an active member of the Geary’s Gap/Wamboin Landcare Group, will talk to us about native birds in our region. He has done regular bird counts in the Sutton Common’s area. His presentation will focus on the wild native birds of Sutton and its surrounding district. What birds do we have here? Are any of them special? What trends are we observing: perhaps some species are increasing in abundance while others are disappearing? What do you do, and what can we do as a community, to make the Sutton district a better place for birds and birding? And what about your bird observations? Do they remain in your head or in notebooks seen only by you, or are you a citizen scientist, sharing your data with the birding and ornithological communities so as to contribute to conservation science? What are the best ways of sharing your observations? David, and our skilled Landcare members, will also try to answer any tricky questions that you may have about bird identification, based on your visual observations and the birds' calls. The meeting will start with our Annual General Meeting (19:30-20:00), and will finish, as is usual, around 20:45 with a light supper. It will be held on 12 February, from 7.30 pm, at the Sutton Primary School. All welcome (you do not need to be a member of Sutton Landcare Group)
