It was a still calm day; the sun was out, perfect weather for a bird walk. We started down the Nature Trail seeing numerous echidna diggings along the sides of the track.

As we continued on the track towards the coast we noticed a few platelets (saucer-like depressions) possibly made by Painted Buttonquail. The antics of a pair of galahs at a tree hollow attracted our attention.

We looked for emu-wrens near the cliffs and in the low vegetation nearby and though there were some faint calls on our way back that could have been them, we didn’t see them this time.

There were a number of pairs of Yellow Robins seen throughout the Park, which are always delightful to watch.

We had a list of 19 birds and everyone enjoyed the morning and the company and we finished with morning tea back at the carpark. An interesting note – the groups ages ranged from nine to 86.
