Hi Netters,

               Drove to the Launceston daffodil exhibition and after that drove north along the West Tamar Road for 11km to the Wetlands Walk where there is a National Park office and shop. There is an excellent wooden walkway which heads east over wetlands and tidal creeks to a wharf alongside the main part of the River Tamar. It is approx 2km return with picnic tables near the wharf. I will start checking the area for possible waders next week. Near the office there were Black Swans with four cygnets and a Little Grassbird.

               On the way back home along a back road from Yorktown on the River Tamar a Pallid Cuckoo was sitting on a power wire and a Black Swan on a nest in a pond.


All the Best

David Siems
