That is one of my favoured places for a stroll, although it is a long time since I did the full distance. If going there with a group it certainly would be a good thing to do the car shuffle with some cars left at Pine Island to shuttle folk back to Kambah after the walk that Martin suggests. I was there on Saturday. Not a lot of birds noted. There certainly were flocks of Y-f honeyeaters flying easterly along the route. This time one of the Wedge-tailed Eagles (it is unusual not to see them) was flying with a branch in its beak. Seeing everyone else seems to be writing about them, I'll mention there were at least 2 Grey Butcherbirds there too. A few weeks earlier on my last try, the Brown Goshawk and Peregrine Falcon were there too.

The plan is for next Wednesday's walk to be between Kambah Pool and Pine Island.  I hope we'll get to see honeyeaters migrating down the Murrumbidgee together with at least a few of the raptors that live in the corridor.   

To make things less physically demanding we are planning a car shuffle with some cars left at Pine Island to shuttle folk back to Kambah after the walk.  Thus far theer are 2 volunteers to leave cars atPine island but judging by the number of attendees at recent walks another two volunteers would be nice.  Could folk please email me directly with their offers. 

The general meeting time at Kambah Pool will be 9am.

Regards to all
