Tuesday Tree Liberators welcome birdersA warm welcome was extended to the birders at the KBCN May bird observation activity on Sunday morning, 8 May, at Pony Club Bend. Leader of the local bushcare group, Helen Moriarty, met the small group of birders and guided them along the Brook through the best places to observe birds.
With clear blue sky above, the group were also appreciative to view the beautiful settings of existing and re-established trees along the Brook.
At the Pony Club Bend bikeway bridge, the group followed through to the adjoining area tended by the Osborne Road Bushcare Group. This group has a wide variety of trees established on the banks of the creek and up the steep slopes on the Osborne Road side.
A stroll along the creek into Teralba Park finished off a most pleasant morning. See the 2016 birder page for more details.
