Out and about – updates

Forest Creek Track

The track has recently had some major refurbishment from the start all the way to Colles Road. The surface has been improved and sections have been re-routed to avoid the muddy lower areas of the path. Great improvement for cyclists and those with accessibility issues. Re-routes are minor and do not impact on the accuracy of the map in the book.

Interesting  recent sightings

  • Muckleford Station White-browed Babblers are breeding again
  • Powerful owls recorded at Botanic Gardens, Newstead and Gowar
  • A recent walk I ran for FOBIF at Gowar recorded 38 species
  • Rise and Shine extension walk at Drury Lane has recently had good numbers of Black-chinned Honeyeaters, Diamond Firetails and White-browed Babblers
  • Brights Lane has good numbers of parrots, probably attracted by the hollows in the big old trees as well as Brown Falcons
