Good Afternoon Wandoona,

Sorry for late reply as I was away up North all yesterday, and at Miranda all morning today.

I have just checked my birding log and find that all three of us arrived there at 1250 and left at 1410. We were in two cars which we parked on the top of the bank on the track and remained with. You did read the date of my post correctly I assume, Monday 15th.

Cheers,

Grahame
