Don and I took advantage of one of the first spring-like days for this season and headed north-east to the Mitchell River at Glenaladale. The Mitchell emerges from the foothills at Glenaladale then meanders through the Lindenow and Bairnsdale district before emptying into Lake King at Paynesville. Don fished and I birded(?)!
Neither of us was particularly successful at our individual pursuits but the locality and the weather made up for any lack of a catch.

I sat for some time on a moss covered rock and watched and listened for a bit – Lewin’s Honeyeaters, Brown Thornbills, Blue Wrens, Yellow-faced Honeyeaters, a distant Lyrebird, several Eastern Yellow Robins and some Eastern Spinebills were the main entertainment.
