Stranger Pond

imageOne of the benefits of working from home and being home alone is that my daily schedule is completely mine to arrange, for today anyway. I decided to take a look at an ebird hotspot just 8 minutes drive away. Work could always start when I got back.

I was amazed that I had never been here before having lived in this area for 12 years. I set off with the idea of making a circumnavigation of the pond. Then I saw this inviting track leading off to the west, that led me down to the Murrimbidgee River and the Bicentennial National Trail.

I enjoy walking on a cool Autumn morning as you don’t need to be on the lookout for snakes, you can completely relax and take in all the small noises and smells of the bush.. mindful walking at it’s best. The circumnavigation and  detour took around 95 minutes and my bird list included  20 species, not a bad result given the foggy conditions.
