Congrats to WA BirdLife Volunteer of the Year recipients

BirdLife WA presents the Rosalind Denny of the Year award at each Annual General Meeting. Many congratulations to recipients Julia Gross, and Lorraine and Richard Chyne.

Julia has been the Secretary of the BirdLife WA Australasian Bittern Project Committee since its inception two years ago. From 2016 she has dedicated many days processing song meter audio files trying to identify Australasian Bittern calls, assisted with roost counts for Operation Rainbow Roost and has been an office volunteer since 2014.  Julia also manages the office volunteer roster and assists with the induction of new office volunteers. 

 Lorraine and Richard Chyne are inaugural (and current) bird survey volunteers for the Great Western Woodlands (GWW) BirdLife surveys since 2013/14.  They organise our BirdLife WA monthly meeting raffle and attendances and Lorraine is a member of the GWW Committee, including being the co-ordinator for the twice yearly GWW bird surveys.  Both Lorraine and Richard are members of the Bird Guide Working Group and are tireless supporters of BirdLife WA activities.
