Pinkerton Forest, Mulla Mulla Grasslands (Bush's Paddock), Eynesbury
Pinkerton Landcare & Environment Group (PLEG) invite the community to join them birding at Pinkerton Forest & Mulla Mulla Woodland (Bush's Paddock) on the below dates in 2022.
Previously these walks were hosted by Birdlife Australia’s Werribee Wagtails, but since the demise of the Werribee Wagtails they will now be hosted by PLEG.
Note: no footpaths- walking is through the bush!
BYO lunch, drinks & snacks. The group will proceed to Eynesbury Forest in the afternoon. Toilets & coffee shop at Eynesbury (composting toilet at Pinkerton).
Pinkerton & Mulla Mulla are not usually open to the public & are home to a large variety of woodland birds. About 127 bird species have been recorded at Pinkerton & about 150 at Eynesbury to date. Wedge-tailed Eagles regularly nest in these woodlands.
These quarterly surveys provide valuable data as to both bird diversity & numbers in these woodlands. Citizen science in action!
