Deep Creek to Eddystone Point

 Please find attached a few photos and the bird list (thanks Des) from our walk on 1st December.  It proved to be a day of all seasons with beautiful, hot and sunny skies followed with rain and wind, then back to being sunny and warm. Our overseas guests from Scotland (Mandy and Andy) were our lucky charms spotting the White-faced Heron nest at the Ansons River causeway. Only one small patch of sea spurge was found and removed along with a pile of garage from the beach closest to the lighthouse. A great day and many thanks to all!

Best wishes,
