The flying foxes put on a wonderful show
March is ‘Australasian Bat Month’ & the Wolli Creek Preservation Society will be having their annual Bat Watch Picnic in Turrella Reserve.
Bring a picnic dinner, rug or chair & insect repellent (for the mosquitoes) & watch thousands of grey-headed flying foxes stream out of their Turrella camp. To me this has been one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.
We are so lucky to have such nature close to us. Flying foxes are extremely beneficial to the environment & without them, our forests would be in real trouble.
WHERE: Turrella Reserve beside Wolli creek. Enter via Henderson Street Turrella or Finlays Avenue Earlwood. Please note that there are no toilets at Turrella Reserve.
