Excursion: Saturday 12 March, 9.30am – Crusoe Reservoir

Leaders: Euan Moore & Jenny Rolland

Enjoy a morning with the birds at the Crusoe Reservoir, Bendigo.  The complete walk around the reservoir is about 3.3km, but there are seats along the way and options for turning back at any time. The path is largely flat. In addition to water and shore birds, we should see a variety of other birds as we walk through a range of vegetation communities from open grasslands, to shrubby corridors and taller forests. We will see many examples of revegetation and habitat restoration.  Beginner birdwatchers and families welcome.

Meet: Meet at the Octopus at 9am or at the Crusoe Reservoir car-park at 9.30am. The car-park is off Crusoe Road, Kangaroo Flat at the northern end of the reservoir.

Bring: Binoculars, water, snacks, sturdy shoes and hat.  BYO chairs, drinks and food for a picnic after the walk. There are toilets at the car park.

The Field Trip is subject to COVID restrictions on the day and will be cancelled in extreme weather conditions or if there is a high fire risk.
