The meeting place: Armidale Visitor Information Centre car park

The Armidale birdwatching group is an informal organisation of people who enjoy birdwatching. Regular outings occur on the first Sunday of the month except January and July; there are extra events as well.

The meeting place is at the Armidale Visitor Information Centre car park, by 7:50am – preparing for departure at 8:00am (both EST and EDST) after rationalising cars.

Bring food (morning tea and sometimes lunch) and water, binoculars, sunscreen, hat and wear stout shoes; bring a picnic chair as most bush spots do not have facilities.

Anyone wishing to join the group should phone Shirley Cook: {mobile prefix oh for}58 260 937, before the outing. All visitors are welcome.

Please note:

  1. There are two Regent Honeyeater/Swift Parrot surveys each year in autumn and spring (May and August) and our group goes to Gwydir Pk Rd TSR. If you are fortunate enough to find any Regents or Swifties at any time, please contact Stephen Debus or Struan Ferguson, Southern New England Landcare, having recorded precise details of the sighting – date, time, exact location and any observable behaviour if possible. Habitat observations (tree species, flowering etc) are also very useful.
  2. COVID-19 safety measures will apply.
  3. The scheduled visit may be changed or cancelled if conditions on the day are likely to affect the excursion.
  4. All comers are welcome but it must be understood that each individual is responsible for their own safety and welfare.
