Sun 5th Nov: Water and a little Geology around
In the morning we will be in Norwood on the NE outskirts of the city. Meet at 10.00 am at the car park at Queechy Lake from where we will take the short drive to Punchbowl Reserve for a toilet stop and walk to the Nature Fissure. We then return to Queechy Lake for birdwatching session until lunch time. In the afternoon, there will be optional visits to McDonald's Farm and the Tamar Island Wetlands. Please check the October Disjunct e-news for detailed directions for the day and information on the birds we hope to see. Or contact either of the walk leaders: Erika Cox or Patricia Ellison.
Sun 3rd Dec: Anniversary Bay, Rocky Cape
Start at 10:00 am from the Boat Ramp at the western end of Sisters Beach; there are signs to the 'Boat Ramp'. The walk takes at least 2.5 hours, in a circuit past Wet Cave, up through high coastal heath, down to a sand and cobble beach, then back up along the grassy headlands. If the weather is inclement, come prepared because it can be quite exposed. Reasonable fitness to climb some steepish hills and walk 7 km on variable surface is required. If the weather in fine we should see a range of coastal vegetation, heath, grassland and coastal birds, and some delightful coastal scenery. This walk is a repeat of the previous, except in a different season. (Leader: Ian Ferris).
