Post event report

Twelve members enjoyed the walk from Theodore on a pleasant winter’s morning, with just an occasional little zephyr.   We saw several Scarlet Robins and all of the thornbills except Yellow.  Honeyeaters were represented by Yellow-faced and White-eared, as well as Eastern Spinebill and Red Wattlebird.

Highlights were nice views of two Wedge-tailed Eagles soaring on the thermals nearby, a pair of Yellow-rumped Thornbills building a nest and Satin Bowerbirds which had advertised their presence with blue objects scattered widely.  Sandra was able to show us a bower, which was well hidden in the undergrowth. We returned to the cars via the gully, where we managed to add a few more species to our short list.  In all, 29 species were observed.
