Thanks Martin,

Any idea of what species I'd be likely to see? I haven't had the time to go birding for months, so I might need to brush up on my ID skills. Is there likely to be a list on Eremaea?

Also, with regards to Chiltern, I just had a look at the park map and there are a lot of different places marked. Which would be the best one to go to?

In the last few days i visited Mates Gully Rd right on the southern outskirts of Tarcutta.  I had thought it got burnt last Summer but in fact the fires seem to have started just on the village side of the TSR so it is unscathed.  The start of the TSR  is, according to Google Earth (see attached screenshot), a lick over 4km from the Hume, and the gate is quite close to the start of the Reserve. 

We couldn't spend much time there but as others in this group can attest it can be great.

Hello all,

I will be driving from Geelong to Canberra on Monday and though it would be good to stop at some places along the way. I was thinking of stopping at Chiltern as I have seen it mentioned many times here, but does anyone have any other suggestions of good spots for birds?
