Dryandra National Park visit

The Club's annual excursion was held on Friday 29th May in the newly created Dryandra National Park
Fifteen members gathered in the Lions Dryandra Forest Village for great weekend. Although a number of members saw our State Fauna Emblem no one managed to get a photo.
There were many echidnas sighted and photographed and a good list of birds and mammals recorded, with a number of unusual ones photographed. These will be added to the website shortly, but here's a taste of them:
