Bird Watching & Counting


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 Alicia Parmiter and Jan & Russell Beardmore.  Other regular volunteers include Pam Rawling, Vik McDonnell, Tony Garman and Susan Bruce.

Results of the team's observations are published in Waterbirds of Curl Curl Lagoon - An analysis of 5 years of survey data.

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