The excursion was to Curdies Inlet at Port Campbell and to the Port Campbell beach. Highlights included a fine view of a soaring White-breasted Sea Eagle, several Hooded Plover, flocks of Blue-winged Parrots and a Calothamnus, which sat for some time in full view on a reed. The Inlet was unusually full – the water level depends in part on when the sand bar was last breached. There were masses of water birds, particularly on the eatern side. Unfortunately, the inlet is frequented by shooters during the duck open season.
Thanks to our leaders, Richard and Jenny Stevens for an interesting excursion.
