Exhibition: Winged Wonders

Another member exhibition is coming up this week.  Paul Sorrell is having an exhibition of “Winged Wonders” at Orokonui Ecosanctuary as part of the Wild Dunedin Festival of Nature. This is bound to be a beautiful exhibition of stunning bird life and will be well worth the short trip out to the Orokonui Visitors Centre.  Don’t forget your camera, as you are bound to be inspired to try and capture your own images of the winged wonders out there.

The exhibition is on 22-24th April from 9.30 – 4.30pm at Orokonui Ecosanctuary Visitors Centre. More info: https://hail.to/wild-dunedin/publication/fiIPqzG/article/h7bNpkO
