Post event report

Fifteen members and guests attended this walk led by Margaret, with 25 bird species recorded, but it was the beautiful woodland which was most admired. The gums have shed their old bark and the gleaming white new bark was stunning.  The bird of the morning was the Crimson Rosella, which were numerous and noisy. At one spot, while watching a male Galah sitting outside a hollow (which his mate seemed to be refurbishing), a Rainbow Lorikeet was spotted peering out of a nearby hollow. Not far away, a Sulphur-crested Cockatoo was seen in another hollow, which seemed to have both front and back entrances.
