Hear, hear! Thanks to the volunteers

Rod Joyce from Birdlife Australia, centre (near orange chair), took guests on the bird walk and spoke about fairywrens.

The City of Nedlands showed its appreciation to five volunteer groups, responsible for conserving and restoring various natural local areas, at Allen Park bushland in early May.

The Friends of Hollywood Reserve, Allen Park, Shenton Bushland and Point Resolution and Swanbourne Coastal Alliance were invited to a special bird walk led by Birdlife Australia.

Numerous bird species were spotted including a variegated fairywren (Malurus lamberti), white-cheeked honeyeaters (Phylidonyris niger), a group of silvereyes (Zosterops lateralis) and a weebill (Smicrornis brevirostris), the smallest bird in Australia.  

Guests also heard about the work the Friends of Allen Park have undertaken over the past 20 years helping to preserve the local bushland. 

The City of Nedlands held the event to recognise the conservation efforts by all five groups.
