Lockdown Escape: - A presentation by Pam Hazelwood.
Come with me as I go to FNQ and up Cape York to Iron Range. While you shivered down south, together with my companions I was comfortably warm and treated to views of some rare and beautiful birds that are found only in this part of our country. It was an amazing trip that was able to be completed against the odds of COVID-19 lockdowns and Virgin Airlines going into administration.

WEDNESDAY 11th NOVEMBER leader Rupert Jarvis
Meet at 9.00 am in the carpark at the end of Holborn Street, Berkeley. We’ve done this walk several times before but it usually gives us a good variety of sightings of both land and water birds. Bring morning tea.
If weather doubtful contact Rupert on 0403 932 635
SUNDAY 15th NOVEMBER leader Alan Cousins
BANGALEE RESERVE -
North Nowra, allow at least 75 minutes travel time.
From the north take the Princes Highway to Bomaderry. Turn right into Illaroo Road at the traffic lights just before Shoalhaven Bridge. At the roundabout veer right and proceed for approx. another 5K’s passing Hockey’s Lane and winery on the right before turning left into Koloona Drive. Travel along Koloona forking right at Scout Camp Road and continuing along a narrow winding road for some way, crossing a creek in a steep dip. The entrance to the reserve is on the left at the top of a rise with a less than distinct sign on the right-hand side of the lane. If you reach ‘Watersleigh’ you have gone too far.
Meet in the car park at 9am There are picnic and toilet facilities in the reserve.
There are 2 walks along the Shoalhaven River - the West we will follow before returning to the reserve for morning tea. The Eastern river walk we will follow and return again to the reserve for lunch. After lunch we may wander around the numerous areas to find the abundant bird life.
In the event of inclement weather contact Alan or Anne Cousins on 0413 869 534 by 7.30am
