The day was beautiful and sunny and 11 members turned up for the outing to Andrew's place. We drove to the southern end of the property to the cadet shelter of old as Andrew was on his way back from Wagga and didn't meet us until later in the morning.
We began the walk past the old quarry which was full to the brim after the winter rains of the past month. Not only that all of the dams were full to overflowing and water was seeping down the hillside so everything had been thoroughly saturated.
We walked up the hill track towards Andrew's lookout and on the way found several outcrops of Dwarf Greenhoods beside the track. We didn't encounter too many birds until almost at the top where we found Red-capped and Eastern Yellow Robins, Jacky Winter and Grey Shrike-Thrush as well as several species of thornbills.
At the top we surveyed Andrew's recent 'summer house' construction and appreciated the view across the area marvelling at the lushness of the area after the long dry summer. The view towards Leeton showed the extent of the water in Fivebough Wetlands after the rains.
