Margaret Lacey led the October Bird Walk attended by 5 people.
The October Bird Walk welcomed some novice birders and the Rufous Whistlers provided an impressive soundtrack for our leisurely stroll along Distillery Creek road.
We began north of Love's Track and, as one of our group had seen a Sacred Kingfisher the day before, we went as far the Aireys Inlet sewage treatment ponds in search of it. We were lucky to find the kingfisher again perched high in the trees along the road beside the ponds.
We saw 25 species which isn't bad for beginners!
