This will be in open country and a good tally of raptors is possible. Wollogorang Road is about 5kms past Rowes Lagoon on the Federal Highway.  Look out for White-fronted Chats and Black Kite. Wet Lagoon has Whistling Kites and Swamp Harriers. Cullerin Road at Mutmutbilly Creek had Brown-headed Honeyeaters recently. Lade Vale Stockpile is good for Diamond Firetails.

Meet in the carpark close to the road at Lyneham Netball Centre in Northbourne Ave (just north of the Mouat St/Antill St lights) at 8.00 am for carpooling.  Distance covered will be approximately 200 kilometres, so the suggested contribution by each passenger to their driver is $10 (please bring cash). The trip will be slow birding along back roads with little walking. Degree of difficulty easy. End time approx. 2.30pm. Bring water, hat, sunscreen, morning tea and lunch, and wear longs pants and appropriate footwear. Morning tea will be at the park in Breadalbane and lunch in the park at Gunning – picnic tables and toilets available at both locations.

Please register with the leader by 7 June with your name and mobile number and name and mobile number of an emergency contact. Numbers limited to 16 (4 vehicles).
