Well, yesterday’s flight got blown out, and it’s looking even worse for today. Just waiting for the phone call. Damn. Will try again for next week, otherwise it’s off to Werribee STW in the middle of winter to freeze to death and hopefully see one there.
Anyway – its not all bad. Mt Field NP is awesome! Some of the biggest trees I’ve ever seen, and some cracking birds – Pink Robin and more Tasmanian thornbills than you can shake a stick at. Trip total is 40 species, with 4 lifers thus far. There’s only 3 more endemics I need to see, and then I’ve got the taswegian bag. Except for OBP, but … Let’s not talk about that anymore…
Today we’re heading down to Recherché Bay, unless I get a phone call that says “hey Troy, even though there’s 60+ kmh winds, we’re going in – keen?”
Not likely eh?
