14 July 2017 – Talk on ‘the Birds of West Papua’
Posted on 10 July, 2017 by Connecting Country
Guest speaker at the July 2017 meeting of the Castlemaine Field Naturalists Club (CFNC) is Nigel Harland. A resident of Sutton Grange and immediate past president of the CFNC, Nigel is perhaps best well-known locally for his annual wildlife-watching trips to remote corners of the world. He has recently visited West Papua and will be speaking about (and displaying photos of) the exotic birds and other sights from this great adventure. Those of you that have attended previous presentations by Nigel will recall his talent as both a photographer and raconteur, and also conveying a depth of knowledge and interesting facts about the locations that he visits.
The presentation is to be on the evening of Friday 14 July 2017, in the Fellowship Room behind the Uniting Church on Lyttleton St in Castlemaine. The Uniting Church is midway between Barker St and Kennedy St, and next door to the Castlemaine Art Gallery. The evening commences at 7.30pm. Entry is free, and both members and visitors are encouraged to come along.
