Birding NSW Autumn 2023 Survey

Birding NSW will be conducting their Autumn Bird Survey Weekend around Grenfell on Saturday 18 March – Sunday 19 March 2023.

Birding NSW come to Grenfell twice a year as part of Birding NSW’s important bird and biodiversity area surveys. Grenfell is their chosen site as it is part of the South West Slopes Key Biodiversity Area, otherwise known as one of ‘nature’s hotspots’.

In small groups, surveys are conducted in Autumn and Spring across 30 sites on both public and private land. The group generally conduct their surveys on a weekend, with Saturday being the main, official survey day. They meet for a barbecue on a private property on Saturday evening. Members of the community are then welcome to join the birding group on the Sunday at Company’s Dam to observe and record birds.

New surveyors are always welcome for the official survey on the Saturday but need to contact Elisabeth Karplus on to become involved.

If you would like to join the casual bird walk on Sunday 19 March at Company Dam, Grenfell, please just turn up at 8:30am. Morning tea will be provided by Central West Local Land Services.
