I arranged to meet my good friend Vik Dunis who is the owner of www.bushpea.com website. I decided to drive firstly to Stawell victoria where I booked in to a motel for the night. I arose early and drove the short distance to Hall's Gape at the base of the Grampian's where I planned to spend the morning looking for the local birds. The light misty rain was not conducive to birding and I only managed to get a couple of shots at an inquisitive Eastern Thornbill. I did however walk a few trails around the National Park and I'm sure I will make it back there before too long. Saturday morning after breakfast we headed off to the Werribee Poo Farm, a well known spot for birders in Australia. I was lucky and had a few new birds to add to my list before we headed back to Melbourne. The next morning it was off for a day around the Lerderderg State Park area and later in the day I scored a few new birds to add to my list. All in all a great time was had and I enjoyed learning new birding techniques in stalking birds. Thanks Vik and Joe for looking after me.
