Out there again for a restorative stroll this afternoon from 3 pm till 4:50. This time it was 2.2 km along the track from Kambah Pool (at the 2nd red rocks gorge viewing platform) till I heard the first lyrebird. That was when l turned around to go back, then on the way back I heard lyrebirds along most of the way, this is likely to have been 2 or 3 birds. I can only guess it was a matter of time of day (approaching sunset) as to why I heard them on the way back and not the way out. Very few other birds noted in that time.

I heard a Superb Lyrebird at Kambah Pool again, at 4:30 today. This time almost from the main car park. As on all previous times, it is far away, on the Bullen Range, on the other side of the Murrumbidge River.

Most years I write a message to this list about the closest place from Canberra to hear a Superb Lyrebird. Well it is there again, or two this time. Directions are, take the walking track from Kambah Pool towards Pine Island. Stop and listen where the big powerlines cross overhead (about 20 minutes walk time from the carpark). The birds can be heard singing from the opposite side of the river. I heard it yesterday but not a week ago.
