I have planned a local morning activity at the Broken River Natural Features Reserve, opposite Reef Hills, this Thursday morning. We will meet at the car park behind the Seniors building at 9.30am. Our numbers are still restricted by COVID to a maximum of 10 participants. So please email or ring me if you would like to attend.
It looks as though most of the forecast rain will fall on Wednesday, and it should be pretty clear by Thursday morning. If all else fails we can go to a café for coffee and cake instead.
I would be very interested to know if any of you have seen any Scarlet Honeyeaters in Benalla recently. I heard one calling in Grant Drive 2 days ago. It would be great to see one on Thursday morning. The male is a stunning bright red little bird, and a rare visitor from coastal NSW and Qld to our area. There was an influx of them to Benalla 3 years ago. They particularly like flowering red bottlebrushes, and flowering mistletoe.
