Earth Matters Presentation: Osprey Banding in NSW, 5.30-7pm on 17 November 2014 at Grafton Public School
Monday 17th November
Osprey Banding in NSW
Presented by Dr Greg Clancy
The Eastern Osprey Pandion cristatus is a rare bird in New South Wales and is listed as a 'vulnerable' on the Threatened Species Conservation Act (1995). It is generally confined to coastal areas from the Queensland border to Lake Macquarie but breeds along the larger North Coast rivers to the limit of tidal influence. Non-breeding birds occur further south and in recent years nesting has been attempted on the Central Coast, at Narrabeen Lake (successfully) and at Ulladulla, on the south coast. Colour banding has been carried out since 1990 with a total of 122 birds, mostly nestlings, having been banded.
The presentation will be held in the Staffroom at Grafton Public School, Queen Street, Grafton from 5.30 – 7 p.m.
There will be ample opportunity for questions and discussion.
Refreshments will follow.
