Contact Call | Volume 11 Number 2 | June 2022

Lake Barrine was the divine location for our BirdLife Northern Queensland Annual General Meeting (AGM) and social birding day out. Due to last minute staff changes at the teahouse, our cruise on the lake had to be moved to an earlier time slot. A last-minute notification went out, but if you didn’t receive it in time, we are sorry you missed it. We were very lucky to have Steve Curry as our boat guide, especially given his long family history at the lake.

After a scrumptious morning tea which included the Lake Barrine Teahouse’s famous scones, jam and cream, we adjourned to the downstairs function room for the AGM, which went off with only a few minor technical glitches.

Sadly, Ray Pierce retired from the committee earlier this year, however, we warmly welcomed Martin and Sam Willis back as Tableland Area Coordinators, and Jenn Muir as Assistant Editor and Committee Member.

The social birding day concluded for most with a relaxing lunch on the veranda. The conscientious committee members stayed on after lunch for our first committee meeting.

Thank you to all 20 or so participants who joined us during the day. It was wonderful to see you in person, and to meet new people and catch up with old friends. To get a feel for the social vibe on the day, check out the images below.
