Society's Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month (except for January) at our venue in the Meeting Room at the Ermington Community Centre at Ermington (next to the Ermington Branch Library).

Meetings commence at 8:00pm


The speaker this month is Nick Atchison.

Nick will be presenting on his trip to Africa. He has covered a lot of birds in the wild with a good selection of finches and love birds.

This should be a great presentation.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Nick AtchesonNick has presented at our meetings before - check out a previous article on our website when Nick spoke about his five year experience managing (and as a part owner) of a Zoo on the island of St Maarten in the Caribbean.

St Maarten Zoo in the Caribbean
(ASNSW Meeting - November 2013).  Presented by Nick Atchison.  "For five years I was managing, in fact I was part owner of a Zoo on the island of St Maarten in the Caribbean. I grew up reading Gerald Durrell's stories, reading about him and his zoo in the British Isles, and it was always a dream (like so many people I suppose) to have my own zoo. I guess I was really lucky that the dream came true for a little while.....".


Visitors welcome. Meet our members and enjoy a good "birdie" chat over a cup of tea or coffee during supper. We love to meet new people and learn from each other's experiences.

Raffle tickets ($5 for 3 tickets) are sold at each meeting and drawn following supper. The sale of these tickets goes towards helping to cover costs for the use of the meeting room.


Evening concludes at 10:00pm.
