Travel lead photographer Mogens Johansen and Travel Editor Stephen Scourfield will team up with Mandurah zoologist Sarah Way for an informative photo/nature walk at Mandurah
The picturesque Creery Wetlands Nature Reserve in Mandurah is a nature lover’s paradise. It’s the perfect place to admire the beauty of the Peel-Harvey estuary and practise your nature and wildlife photographic skills.
Travel lead photographer Mogens Johansen and Travel Editor Stephen Scourfield will team up with Mandurah zoologist Sarah Way for an informative photo/nature walk at the reserve.
Sarah, who has more than 20 years of experience working with threatened species and conservation plans, will share her extensive knowledge about the local birdlife and wetlands ecology while Mogens and Stephen, who have been working as professional photographers for several decades, will give tips about nature and wildlife photography.
The reserve is located near the Mandurah Traffic Bridge and part of the the Peel-Harvey estuary.
It is one of the most important sites for waterbirds in the south-west of WA and home to about 75 species of waterbirds, including 22 migratory shorebirds. We will meet at Nourishing the Soul Cafe in Dudley Park for a quick briefing before starting the nature walk. The walk through the wetlands is easy, the paths are firm and level and there are several boardwalks and bird hides where we can see the birdlife and practise photographic skills.
So, dust off your camera and put on comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen.
The event is on Sunday, February 23, from 8-10am. For full details, head to westravelclub.com.au/events.
