Hi Birders,

Twenty minutes for lunch at the Morwell National Park today in stifling heat showed me enough birds to suggest that on a cooler day I should go on one of the nature walks.  I might have added a Goshawk to this list, but while the call was familiar, I am not quite sure.

Probably the highlight was a very hot Koala that was spread out on a tree, hugging it in a cross formation, legs and arms spread to allow maximum air flow, I know how he felt.


List follows:
