Ryu Callaway
POSTPONED FROM 29th FEB.  Due to ongoing uncertainty owing to the closure of Googong for the foreseeable future, the outing scheduled for Sat 29 Feb will be postponed, most probably to Sat 28 March. 
We will carpool from Calwell and start with a loop to London Bridge Homestead, mostly open with scattered trees and fringing woodland. The area around the Homestead can be good for declining woodland species such as Hooded Robin, Dusky Woodswallow, Diamond Firetail, Brown Treecreeper, and Southern Whiteface. We will then visit Tin Hut Dam for lunch where Yellow Thornbill, Musk Duck, and Australian Shelduck are possibilities. Wombats are almost guaranteed. If there is a Total Fire Ban the reserve will be closed and the walk will be cancelled.
