The excursion begins at Grasstree Park, Torquay. This heathy woodland site hosts many bush bird species. We will do an inner and outer loop of the park which will take approximately 60 to 90 minutes.

Our second stop will be Pt Impossible which is known as an important shorebird habitat. We will have morning tea here where there is a toilet, after which we will explore the area. From the car park there are several unmade paths to descend to the beach and walk to the inlet or along the beach itself.

The final stop is Breamlea where we will park at the oval on Horwood Drive for lunch. There is a toilet and a small BBQ shelter. After lunch we will make our way along the road to the Thompson Creek estuary and a small, grassed area observing any bird action. This is a good site for unusual water birds. We will return to the cars going slightly inland to look over the salt marsh at the back of the oval

Meet: 9.00 a.m. at Grasstree Park.

Bring: Sturdy walking shoes, a good rain jacket, and hat are essential. Dress appropriately according to the weather conditions. Don't forget to bring a chair, morning tea, lunch and binoculars.
