Tidbinbilla - 17 August [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

Subject: Tidbinbilla - 17 August [SEC=UNCLASSIFIED]

A family outing to Tidbinbilla on Sunday produced the following along the
Wetlands Walk at The Sanctuary:

- Black Swans with 5 cygnets;
- the single semi-captive Brolga;
- a sorry looking pair of semi-captive Pelicans (surely its too cold for
them?); and
- a male Musk Duck.

By the large picnic/BBQ area there were:

- 3 Emus;
- New Holland Honeyeaters;
- Pipits; and
- many Flame Robins.

And as we were leaving we had close up views of an Emu with 4 youngsters.
They were by the fence between the visitor centre and the main entrance (on
the Cotter-Tharwa Rd).

Does anyone know whether there are still any Koalas present in the Koala
enclosure? The signs state it is now the Wet Eucalypt Forest walk and
several 'Koala' signs have been taped over.
Anyway we couldn't find any despite searching.
