Field Trip: Botanic Gardens with Maureen
Date: Wednesday 26th September 2018
Trip Guide: Maureen
Meet at: 9.30am by the bridge from Armagh Street car park and again at around 11.00am for a post mortem at Ilex Cafe.
Attractions: Spring time in the Gardens. Everything looks great at this time of year. First stop around the ponds to the rockery via the New Zealand section where there are sometimes native birds – then along the stream path, where there are often small subjects ideal for macro. If it’s damp there are the greenhouses also. There will be birds nesting around this time – pigeons (kereru), fantails, bellbirds, and the usual ducks – shoveler, mallard, and paradise often with ducklings. There’s always something new happening, and of course later the cafe for coffee and a chat about what we’ve seen and photographed.
