                  Our challenge for 2018
   200 species for Tamworth's anniversary
2018 will mark 200 years since the explorer John Oxley passed through the Tamworth area.   Local clubs have been asked to do something in 2018 to mark this anniversary.
We have set ourselves the challenge of sighting 200 species of birds within our region between 1/1/18 and 31/12/18.   So please, if you are a club member, be a part of this and let us know what you have seen.

We've recorded 200 species !
it only took us 7 months
(up to 206 at the end of September)
