A reminder to members and subscribers that this annual event will be held on Sunday.  Details are below.
The MV Gull is almost full but if there is sufficient interest (about 4 people) we can use the Cygnet as well, and split the loads.

East Basin/Molonglo Reach;  Sunday 16 February – Electric boat cruise

This will be the outing/cruise for 2014 on the upper parts of Lake Burley Griffin (East Basin) and the adjacent Molonglo River Reach, where late summer or early autumn is the peak time for nesting, with darters as well as three species of cormorant known to breed there.  The area is also rich in other water birds, and a variety of land birds can be seen on the banks. 

The boat trip will last about 2 hours from 8 am and will cost $20, payable in cash on boarding.  This year we will again be travelling in the electric boat “MV Gull” which can carry up to 20 people.  The smaller “Cygnet” able to hold 10 people is on standby if the Gull is filled.  The boats will allow both a quiet approach as well as access to areas difficult to get to from the land.  As Kingston Harbour in now open and operational, the point of departure will be from there.  Participants will need to leave their cars in the Glass Works car park and walk across Eastlake Parade and down Trevillian Quay where the boats will be readily visible.  Alternatively there is street parking with various time limits on Eastlake Parade, including free all day parking on weekends along the way in.

Registration for this field trip is essential.  Please book your place on the boat with Jack Holland (on 6288 7840 AH or by E-mail on m("","jack.holland"); href="">).
