A calm still morning was the perfect time to find Emu-wrens.
And they were not far along Peregrine Track, sitting up in a small tree above the heath allowing us lots of time to observe them.
Watching the Emu-wrens
It was a great thrill to find them, especially for those who hadn’t seen them before.
We saw 22 species during the morning including a group of quietly feeding Gang-gang Cockatoos on Red River Track where we had a pleasant morning tea.
