Meet at 8.30am.  Map 27 D14 (UBD). Park at step-through access gate on the right hand side of the Kambah Pool Road. This is about 700 m from the roundabout where the Kambah Pool Rd crosses Allchin Cct/Barrett St, Kambah.  The gate is opposite the start of the golf club driving range and about 400 m before the entry to the golf club.

Depending on the size, fitness and ability of the group, we’ll either walk the perimeter track with short excursions into the bush, or we’ll climb the hill and spend a little more time in the bushy bits.  However, even if we do the later, we’ll spend time in the grassy areas in hopes of seeing Double-barred Finch and/or Diamond Firetail and/or Red-browed Finch.  Whichever route we take, we’ll try to find Speckled Warbler, and keep an eye out for raptors and any of the migrants which may still be around.

Remember to bring water, and sunscreen and a hat.  No booking required.  If you have any questions contact Michael Robbins (mrobbins at
