If anyone would like a sneak preview, Jennie Wetmiller (Environmental Education Officer of QCC who came along to the Queanbeyan Sewage Works with us) has sent me the following message.

"We are having an open day this Saturday, 9 August at Mount Jerrabomberra.  I’ve attached an information flyer.  Anyone can attend, as we will have transportation to the top of Jerra for a view from our new platform.  There will also be a coffee van giving away free tea/coffee/nibbles.  I thought you might like to pass the word on to your fellow ornithologists because this provides a terrific opportunity for bird watching. "

The next Wednesday walk will be at Jerrabomberra Hill (Mount Jerrabomberra?) in the Jerrabomberra area of Queanbeyan. Meet at 9am at the carpark (see below).
Access via Tompsitt Drive off Lanyon Drive. Take first left off the big roundabout, into Limestone Drive, then a left at Halloran Drive. Jerrabomberra Hill Road is off to the right along that road. There is a parking area next to the locked gate into the reserve (some informal car pooling would be good because it's not a huge carpark!). There is limited on-street parking, and when I was there yesterday (a Wednesday) some bins were out, so on-street parking may not be a good idea.
The road to top of the hill is a very pleasant, easy walk through woodland with lots of stringbark, other eucs, acacias, and quite a lot of flowering at present. Several mixed flocks with thornbills, weebills, scarlet robins, pardalotes were seen yesterday, and around 30 species altogether.. Keep fingers crossed for a non-foggy morning!
