Despite good intentions, our plan for an early start was sabotaged by
the Car Trial on Saturday night - we didnt get to bed till 3 am and
consequently the Full Day's Birding was rather curtailed. Still,
beautiful weather after the mist lifted. Mainly in Box-Ironbark forest
and farmland, also Heathcote township.
