What: Is it a bird? A plane? No… it’s super yellow robin! So if you ever wondered if you’d just seen a rufous whistler, a spotted pardalote, or a new Holland Honeyeater, come along to the exhibition, pick up a copy of our new bird brochure and become a birder!
The new bird brochure is designed to help locals and visitors identify the many lovely birds that visit the Balcombe Estuary Reserves. The brochure features 52 birds, with exquisite coloured illustrations by local artist and BERG Mt Martha member, Annie Dowd.
Where: Mornington Library Foyer Exhibition Space
When: Exhibition runs from April 24 – May 23. The bird brochure will be launched at an afternoon tea on Saturday May 3 from 4.30 pm by David Reid, OAM, a keen birder, and member of the board of Birdlife Australia.
Brochures will also be available at The Briars Visitor’s Centre, or contact BERG Mt Martha http://www.berg.org.au/
The brochure is sponsored by Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Art Stream Community Grants program
About BERG Mt Martha
BERG Mt Martha – the Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group is a friends group formed in 1997 to preserve and restore the bushland of the Balcombe Estuary Reserves. Balcombe Creek, with its estuary, is the largest unspoilt waterway entering the eastern side of Port Phillip Bay. The reserves cover 44 hectares of natural bushland along the creek’s lower reaches, running from the Nepean Highway to the beach.
