Mudgee to Coonabarabran

20 06 2010


Yesterday, we drove from Mudgee to Coonabarabran via Munghorn Gap and The Drip.

Munghorn Gap is a great spot, but we didn’t get to The Drip early enough – wind had picked up, clouds rolled in = not many birds.

Bird wise, highlights would have to be 8 species of raptor including 3 seperate Peregrine Falcons, the meeting of east and west birds at Munghorn, and Keryn’s well spotted King Parrots. Oh and a ridiculously tame Willie Wagtail that I was able to use the macro lens on! Still no interwebs, so photos when we get back to Sydney or if we get some at the next place we stay.

Today we’re off to the Warrumbungles where my target is Red-winged Parrot, and tomorrow we’re off to the Pillliga. I’ll write some more tomorrow unless we have a cracker today!
