Geocache Description:

Welcome to my latest series, designed to encourage you to visit the country town of Nagambie. Nagambie is located between Seymour and Shepparton along the Golburn Valley Highway. Come and visit for the weekend, there plenty of places to stay. The best weekend is the first Saturday of each month when you can also spend some time at the farmers market. There is a Festival in March called Nagambie On Water where all sorts of activities occur.

I was Paddling from Kirwins Bridge to Nagambie earlier this year (2012) and realised there were so many different types of birds in the general area, so I have decided to make it a bird themed series.

Dont forget to collect the number from the log sheet for the final cache of the series.



Some interesting Information about......Welcome Swallow


The Welcome Swallow (Hirundo neoxena) is a small passerine bird in the swallow family. It is a species native to Australia and nearby islands, and self-introduced into New Zealand in the middle of the twentieth century.[2] It is very similar to the Pacific Swallow with which it is often considered conspecific. This species breeds in southern and eastern Australia in a variety of habitats, mostly in open areas, man made clearings or urban environments, but not desert or dense forest.[3] Eastern populations are largely migratory, wintering in northern Australia. Western birds and those in New Zealand are mainly sedentary.

All bird information and images have been sourced from Wikipedia.
