Meetings
Birding with Cumberland Bird Observers
Southern Boobook

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday night of every month at the Wesley Castle Hill Uniting Church.

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.

Location: The Wesley Castle Hill Uniting Church is at the corner of Kentwell and Showground Roads, Castle Hill. Best access is via the carpark at the back of the church. This is off Worthing Avenue, which can be accessed from Kentwell Ave. Note that you cannot turn from Showground Rd into Kentwell Ave; it has to be approached from Castle St.
