We birded along the walking tracks down the hill from the parking area, in a tall forest of Victorian Blue Gum and Narrow-leafed Peppermint, with a mixed wattle understorey. We had great views of 3 Eastern Yellow Robins chasing one another, a flock of Red-browed Finches, several Grey Fantails, Brown Thornbills, Superb Fairywrens, and King Parrots and Crimson Rosellas.
Later in the walk we found a few Yellow-tufted Honeyeaters and White-naped Honeyeaters.
It was interesting to look up at the dam wall, and watch Ryans Creek flowing below us in a deep and narrow gorge. We also saw the pipeline that carries drinking water to Benalla.
