CURRENT ART EXHIBITION
‘The Wetlands – a blessed sanctuary’
“On visiting The Wetlands from time to time and from season to season, one thing stands out to me. This is a place of great peace and a blessed sanctuary set aside for a vast array of local native birdlife.To be able to encounter so many species at close hand is a great privilege.
My art conveys not only the birds and their distinctive features but also portrays them in their natural habitat. To see birds and families feeding and others nesting, reminds us how valuable creatures are to our connection with all things natural and wild.”
All artworks are for sale.
Exhibiting until 28th October (extended due to COVID lockdown)
Opening Hours: 9am-4pm

1 Wetlands Place Shortland NSW 2307
MAGPIE GEESE FEEDING
Daily at 10.30am the Magpie Geese are fed on the artificial grass mat on the edge of BHP Pond near the dip-net jetty.
Come along and watch (and listen to) the free for all at feeding time.
Other pond birds like the Pacific Black Duck, Eurasian Coots and Purple Swamp Hens join in too.
The number of birds being fed varies with the seasons.
They are fed a mixture of grains – Sorghum, layer pellets and wheat.
They are never fed bread as it is like junk food to birds.
