On Friday I joined a friend fishing out of a canoe in the Murrumbidgee some
10 km downriver from Uriarra. Though bird watching wasn't the aim we had
good views of a young Sea-eagle overhead and some of the expected bushbirds,
most notable being several of both gerygones in full voice.

Of more interest were:
1. State of the riparian vegetation - massive die-back of river oaks
(remember the area was not affected by the 2003 fires).
2. We saw from close range at least 2 Platypi.
3. Viewed 3 Wallaroos
4. Caught and released relatively large Murrey Cod (one over 12 Kgs).

BTW, there is a 10 Ha property for sale there at about 1.5 M$.
