'Beyond' Survey Area Boundaries (250km radius of Toowoomba)

Post by Mick Atzeni » Mon May 07, 2007 7:22 am

Just to reiterate, the 250 km radius defining the BEYOND region extends to:

* Gayndah, Tairo and Tin Can Bay to the north
* The coast between Tin Can Bay and Ballina to the east, including offshore sightings
* About 30 km north of Glen Innes, to the south
* About 30 km south of Goondiwindi, to the southwest
* West to Westmar and Erringibba NP (just east of Glenmorgan on the Surat-Tara Rd), and
* about 10km west and northwest of Miles

Note that the BEYOND region excludes the club's official survey area, which is a rectangular region extending from the Kingsthorpe area, NW of Toowoomba, to the Mt Whitestone area, SE of Helidon. Sightings in this core region should be posted under the WITHIN listing on this Forum.

Therefore, most of the local wetlands including Cooby Dam, and those around Laidley, Gatton and Esk are not within the club's local survey area, but are in this BEYOND survey area.

You do not have to be a member of the Toowoomba Bird Observers to contribute to the surveys. Same applies for all forum topics.

Remember, if in doubt, leave it out or indicate as much.

Look forward to your contributions!
