Rankins Springs Annual Bird Tours

Dam at Rankins Springs - Dionee RussellSplendid Fairy-wren - Kathy TenisonOn the 29th and 30th of September a few of us attended the Annual Bird Tours at Rankins Springs hosted by the Lachlan Fold Wildlife Action Group.

It was an early start on the Saturday with a 6:00 am loading onto the bus.  In the morning we visited three different sites and used one of these stops as a morning tea stop.  Lunch was at the park next to the Hall in Rankins Springs.  The food for morning tea and for lunch was excellent.  Lunch was interrupted by birding and in particular some disappeared across the road chasing the elusive Spotted Bowerbird that on this occasion wasn't that elusive.
