Ten Wednesday Walkers met on a morning which threatened rain but held off until the end of the walk. A White-faced heron was spotted in the river as we drove in. There were many birds around the carpark area, including Scarlet robins, White-eared honeyeaters, White-plumed honeyeaters and Weebills. We walked from the locked gate, along the main track, since the the lower track is now quite overgrown and the steps to main track are buried under tonnes of fill. At the end of the track a succession of nice birds came and went from the dead trees on the hillside – Diamond firetails, Speckled warblers, Scarlet robins, a Yellow robin, several Southern whiteface. Along the track we came across more Diamond firetails, numerous Yellow-rumped thornbills, a Rufous whistler, Goldfinches and more Speckled warblers. A Black-shouldered kite flew across the river above us. A very large male eastern grey kangaroo came down to the river, made its way across, and bounded up the hillside a few metres away. 40 species in all recorded for the morning.
