Hi everyone,
Just got back from a four day interlude at Wilsons Promontory in
southern Victoria. The weather was fantastic, it felt like summer except
for the fact that the sun was so low in the sky all day. The campground
was practically deserted. The highlights were Beautiful Firetails seen
on the first day at Millers landing, and Southern Emu-wrens, seen on the
last day, after about fifty circuits of the Looern Track. Full list is

Cheers, Lainie
