With many people away at the SEANA camp in Little Desert it was a small group who met for the October bird walk.

We were privileged to visit the Coastal Forest Lodge property and enjoyed the tracks through the bush.

We found the eagle nest though it is falling into disrepair after not being used for many years.

The dams were full with lovely reflections, a chorus of frogs were calling and large rainbow trout were observed.


We had a total of 34 species with good views of Blue-winged Parrots, Dusky Wood-swallows, Horsfields Bronze-cuckoos, Yellow Robins and Eastern Rosellas.

We were unable to find the Powerful Owl nest that had been seen a few years ago.

Thank you to Allan, Gail and Iona Roberts for allowing us to birdwatch on this delightful property.
