Hi Elizabeth and Kath


Sorry for taking so long to get this together. I’ve made a list of all the species we saw during the bird walk along Black Range Rd on September 25th, 2016 – 40 species, it’s quite impressive! And so were the flowers. If we had made a list of plant species it would be equally impressive. A very lovely and precious part of the landscape. Please pass this on to those who came to the walk.
