Þ Aussie Backyard Bird Count—October 22-28
https://aussiebirdcount.org.au/
The #AussieBirdCount is a great way to connect with the birds in your backyard no matter where your backyard happens to be — a suburban backyard, a local park, a patch of forest, down by the beach, or the main street of town.
You can count as many times as you like over the week, we just ask that each count is completed over a 20-minute period. The data collected assists BirdLife Australia in understanding more about the birds that live where people live.
Þ Hairdresser still wanted for October 20
Experienced hairdresser wanted to help pamper at our Cockies and Miners day on October 20. Assistance with travel costs and accommodation provided.
