Ovens Valley

I have a tour in a week around the Bright-Mt Buffalo area so I thought it would be a good idea to check out the area before it started.

Unfortunately my camera card died so I don't have any pictures.

I checked out Mt Buffalo, highlights being a Pilotbird calling at Lake Catani and Red-browed Treecreeper at Rollasons Falls. Around Bright Satin Bowerbird, Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoo and Gang-gang Cockatoo were some nice birds.

I finished off the day at Myrtleford Sewage Ponds and nearby at Reform Hill State Forest, a Leaden Flycatcher at the latter. At the sewage ponds a nice selection of ducks and some drier forest birds in the box-stringybark forest behind the ponds such as Fuscous Honeyeater, White-throated Gerygone, Horsfield's Bronze-Cuckoo and Dusky Woodswallow.

92 species for the day.
