Jerrabomberra Grasslands West (or horse paddocks)

Meet at the southern entrance to the reserve, on the western side of the Monaro Hwy about 400m north of the Lanyon Dr intersection at 7:30am. If coming down Monaro from the north, I believe there is a small crossing across the median, but it may be safer to turn around in Hume or there is a roundabout some way down Lanyon Dr. Parking is very limited – the entrance is immediately adjacent to a driveway of a private property, so when parking do not block the driveway or the designated bicycle lane, and please, please carpool if possible. Hopefully the grass verge will be mown which would make parking easier.  We will traverse through the grassland to the excellent woodland at the back, which is often host to a good range of summer migrants such as Rufous Songlark, bronze-cuckoos, woodswallows, Tree Martins, and gerygones, as well as some scarcer species like Diamond Firetail and Southern Whiteface.
It is a decent trek through the grasslands, so bring sun protection and plenty of water, and appropriate dress for snakes.
