There are still a couple of places left on this trip, so if you're interested now's the time to book.
The skipper has just been up the reach and tells me there's still a lot of breeding activity, particularly Little Black Cormorants, and some new darter nests.
Hello subscribers
The postponement of the Honeyeater outing/survey to 8 April has allowed the opportunity to fit in an autumn electric boat trip up the Molonglo Reach. 
When we last went in January a number of people missed out or indicated they would like to go again.  So here's your opportunity:

East Basin/Molonglo River; Sunday 2 April ? Electric boat cruise

For the final time in 2005-2006 there will be an outing/cruise on the upper parts of Lake Burley Griffin (East Basin) and the adjacent Molonglo River on the all electric "E.L. Cygnet?.  As members will be aware this boat allows both a quiet approach as well as access to areas normally difficult to get to.  The main objective will be to view nesting, with three species of cormorant and darters known to breed there, but the area is also rich in other waterbirds. 

The boat trip will last about 2 hours from 8 am and will cost $20, payable in cash on boarding.  Please book your place on the boat with Jack Holland by return E-mail or on 6288 7840 AH (or by E-mail on m("","jack.holland");">).  As the boat takes a maximum of 10 passengers it will be on a first in best dressed basis.  Note that the point of departure is now from the little landing adjacent to the car park in Bowen Park opposite the new Landmark Apartments.  This car park may be accessed off Bowen Drive (going either way). 

This is being first advertised on the chat line as it's not known whether the April Gang-gang will be out by this time.
