Bli Bli Outing

A sample of the assembled [this and all photos by Warren Bennet]
Rain threatened and delivered and yet the birders came! Nearly 40! It was against my best expectations and I'm sure more than a few people arrived at Muller's Park this morning convinced that they would be birding alone.

Despite the rain the birding was good with over 80 spp recorded between the two sites; Muller's Park and the Finland Road area.
