Flooding in the Lachlan Valley has seen the arrival of large numbers of waterbirds. These flocks appear to be following the flood water as it slowly moves down the valley. Currently the water has reach Euabalong West resulting flood water backing up into a number of flood plains. Large flocks of Plumed Tree-ducks and Black Swans are present as well as Hardheads, Pink-eared Ducks and larger flocks of Straw-necked and White Ibises. Egret species so far has been Large and Plumed. Flocks of White-necked and White-faced Herons are also present.
This flood water well end up flowing into the Booligal wetland complex which should result in Good waterbird breeding.
  All indicators appear to point to a good season coming up for birds and birdos.
