Bird Week (20‒26 October) will see two events in Woodend to be run by MRSC.

The first is a Bird Forum on Saturday, 18 October with talks by twitcher extraordinaire Sean Dooley, as well as two local birders Ron Fink and Bruce Donaldson. This will be a great chance to find out about native birds, as well as the work of the Macedon Ranges Indian Myna Action Group in controlling that pest species. Limited spots are available, so reserve your place with William Terry on 5421 9674 or at Woodend Neighbourhood House 2pm – 4pm, nibbles on arrival; please arrive at 1.30pm for prompt start. Link to Shire site


The second event is a Bird Count and we’re encouraging all Landcarers to take part in this easy 20-minute backyard survey. The aim is to collect data to monitor and track distribution and numbers of birds in the Macedon Ranges, as well as gauge threats. Check out the Shire website or the Landcare window for more info.
