Dec bird survey

The large Freshwater and Saltwater lakes have risen lately, which suits diving feeders, such as Hardheads, Australasian Grebes and Hoary-headed Grebes – suggesting aquatic invertebrates and other small prey are plentiful in the former.

With several eucalypts flowering lightly, numerous nectar feeders are present, especially Rainbow Lorikeets, White-plumed Honeyeaters and Red Wattlebirds. A worry: one Noisy Miner was sighted in the park proper.

Interesting/notable sightings: Reed Warblers, one Black-shouldered Kite – in a low red gum, and a Red-kneed Dotterel.
