Bird Watching & Counting


NOTE:  Bird Survey has resumed for 2020 following Council's lifting of the ban due to the pandemic.


This project was established by Council's Natural Environment Unit in April 2017 and was intended to run for two years.  Its objective was to measure the size and variety of bird life at the Lagoon.

At the end of this period the project was taken over and run as a permanent activity by Lagoon Friends members, with the field work being led by keen bird watcher Ms Alicia Parmiter.  Other regular volunteers include Jan & Russell Beardmore, Pam Rawling, Vik McDonnell, Tony Garman and Susan Bruce.

Volunteers meet at the Park St bridge at 7:30AM on the last Friday of every month and new faces are always welcome.
