About The Walk

This Saturday, 27 May, another combined activity of BirdLife’s Darling Downs group and Toowoomba Bird Observers is planned as part of the 2023 series of bird surveys on LUCI member properties, in the upper Lockyer catchments. We will visit the property of Peter and Elspeth Darvall on Kennedys Road, Egypt (Queensland!) via Stockyard. This holding is a little larger than the property visited in February and is mostly covered in mixed gum-ironbark woodland with some grassy open areas, situated on a plateau in headwaters of Palm Tree Creek. So far, 52 bird species have been recorded here for the LUCI bird survey project and there is plenty of scope for additions.

Please indicate your intention to join us by RSVP no later than Thursday night 25 May. (Apologies for the short notice.)

Getting There
