Description:  Those members who will be staying at home this Easter and/or who will have visiting birder friends are welcome to join this outing to the Narrabundah Hill reserve.  It has again been timed for the autumn honeyeater migration season, with the northern and western boundaries of the reserve being known local migration routes.  We will walk along these two boundaries, depending on conditions and the species seen, and we will either return by the same or a different path.  This will be around 4 km on relatively flat ground.  We will also look for other autumn birds such as the Scarlet Robin and mixed feeding flocks, or late departing summer migrants such as the gerygones.

Meeting time:  As it is Daylight Savings, this walk will start at 8:30 am to maximise the opportunity to see the honeyeaters which generally come through late in the morning in early April (we saw over 2500 birds there at a similar timing in 2019).

Meeting place:  Meet at the parking area and stile at the northeast end of the reserve, at the corner of Warragamba Avenue and Eucumbene Drive, Duffy.  Please note that the entry to this parking area is a little tricky and is in fact about 25 metres past (on the Mount Stromlo side) the T-junction with Warragamba Avenue, and for those driving along Eucumbene Drive from Duffy involves a quite tricky 180 degrees turn, so please take care.  Please take water and morning tea to have on the track.

Name of leader and contact details:  To participate, please contact Jack Holland by email on – please include your mobile, and emergency contact name and number.
