BANQ AGM weekend, Ingham June 2-3, 2007

Members travelled to Ingham for the first weekend in June. We enjoyed our AGM - the opening of the new Tyto Wetlands Interpretive Centre - some fine wining, dining and coffee - plus fine birdwatching at Tyto and The Orient. There were over 200 Brolgas at The Orient lagoon (scroll down for birdlists on the day).

Gathering at Tyto Wetlands, 7 am Sunday
