Easter Saturday 31 March – Narrabundah Hill

Those members who will be staying at home this Easter and/or will have visiting birder friends are welcome to join this outing to the Narrabundah Hill reserve.  The walk has been timed for the honeyeater migration season, with the northern and western boundaries of the reserve having some of the few currently known local migration routes.  We will walk along these two boundaries and either return by the same or a different path.  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.


This walk will start at 9:00 am to maximise the opportunity to see the honeyeaters which generally come through late in the morning at the end of March/early April (it is also the last day of daylight savings).  Meet Jack Holland (6288 7840 or at the parking area and stile at the NE 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.
