Bird survey July

The park looks good, thanks to a reasonably wet June. Waters level are high in the two main lakes and the dam, but all other freshwater bodies are dry including the wetlands near the FoWP Compound. 

Volunteers are back at work, with their recent plantings taking off quickly. Visitor numbers are rising and the riparian vegetation must please many ferry passengers. 

An Eastern Spinebill was again sighted, indicating this species is becoming a resident in the park. It was [photographed for the first time in June this year.
