A reminder that the Wednesday walk for 15 August will be at McQuoids Hill in Kambah. McQuoids Hill is on the left of Kambah Pool Rd when you enter that road from Sulwood Drive/Namatjira Drive. There is a step-through gate in the fence, opposite the golf course. Meet near the gate at 9am.
In September the Wednesdays walkers will venture further afield, to the property Illilanga and then Strike-a-Light TSR, both of which we visited last year with good results.
COG members Sandra Lauer and Jeremy Meares own Illilanga, which is monitored as part of the K2C surveys, and usually has some good birding.
The property is on Baroona Rd, Michelago. Baroona Road is approx. 9km past the the Michelago petrol station, off the Monaro Highway to the west (righthand side if you're coming from Canberra). Turn into Baroona Road & follow the bitumen road to the right when you come to an intersection with Weemala Lane. The house is the second on the left approx. 790m from the highway (number 79) - an A-frame up the hill. Parking is best on the verge near the letter box.
It's about a 20-25 minute drive from Calwell, 40-45 minutes from Fyshwick or Queanbeyan. I'll try and organise some carpooling closer to the date.
When we've had a chance to look around at Illilanga, and had some morning tea, we'll proceed on to the Strike-a-Light TSR, which is 11k down the Jerangle Road. The turnoff is in Bredbo.
