A Christmas Morning Walk



(Sub-title: ‘A wren pair in a plum tree’)

The Two Towns Trail is a cycling/walking track linking the towns of Warragul and Drouin. This very inviting trail consists of a wide paved track with excellent infrastructure features like boardwalks and bridges, well lit road crossings with barriers, seats, distance posts, interpretive signs, etc, and provides some wonderful views of the two towns, and the Baw Baw Ranges.

Looking north-west: the Baw Baws, part of Drouin and a bit of the freeway.

Great trees and shrubs in places.

A well made boardwalk to help negotiate a steep bank beside the freeway.

A sculptural piece at a road crossing.

Although it runs very close to the freeway and the old Princes Highway, in places it passes through some interesting habitat zones – wetlands, woodland fringes and grasslands.
 
A pair of blue wrens catching some early sun.

The birds were spotted in a 'wild' cherry plum tree.

Early this morning I walked a few kilometres of the section east of Buln Buln Rd and although I didn’t see Santa, I did stop several times to drink in some of the scenes around me.

  1. It looks like a delightful place to walk and the little wrens are beautiful. Season's Greetings and I look forward to more bird news from your part of the country in the year to come. (I don't always comment on your blog but I do always read it!)

  2. Thanks Mick,
    And back at you, all the best for 2015.
    I do the same - look in at Sandy Straits quite frequently without commenting.
