I have to put an extra 2,000 kms on my car by the end of the month, so took a Sunday drive to Dharug National Park, on the Hawkesbury. A very pretty drive from the Central Coast passing through farmland and rainforest pockets before winding along the river.
So Maureen and I hung around the picnic area at Mill Creek and walked the short Grasstree Track that followed the creek.
Highland Cattle on the riverside farmland
Masked Lapwing at the river’s edge
Young Whipbirds actually showed themselves in the low shrubs
Eastern Yellow Robin were characteristically curious
A cooperative White-eared Honeyeater gave me my best photos of this species to date.
Brush Turkeys wandered the picnic area
