Meetings
Birding with Cumberland Bird Observers
Willie Wagtail

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday night of every month at the ‘Friendship Room’ at Wesley Castle Hill Uniting Church, corner of Kentwell and Showground Roads, Castle Hill. Vehicles may enter from Worthing Road at the rear, or from Showground Road itself.

Meetings usually consist of guest speakers (some from overseas), "bird of the night" where we learn identification tips, then time to socialise over a free cup of coffee, tea or orange juice. There is also time to enter your bird sightings in the Interesting Observations book.

If you don't have a car, give us a call and we can try to arrange someone to pick you up. Meetings last until about 9.30pm or 10pm.

Don't be shy - come along and say g'day.
