Meet at 9.00 am at the Sherwood Forest car park on Mountain Creek Rd at Our slow walk will take us up the forestry road through woodlands to the hill top.  There are nice views to be had across to Canberra and a good range of woodland birds to be found, including the chance of Spotted Quail-thrush.

Eight COG members joined me for this outing, with trip organiser Kim laid low by a bad cold. While the hoped-for quail-thrush failed to materialise, we managed 29 species, including a persistent Wonga Pigeon heard for an extended period. Other species included a White-winged Chough on a nest, several Rufous Whistlers, two Shining Bronze-Cuckoos and several White-throated Treecreepers.  Many of those on the outing had not been to this area before, and we all enjoyed the wonderful views from the top of the walk.
