Hi All
Further to my last email, those birders interested in birding at Homebush should note that during the Olympics and Para-Olympics, there is no public access to the areas I mentioned in my last email.  Access is however, available for registered Birds Australia volunteers to the Silverwater Nature Reserve (those who have been conducting surveys at the site).
After the games, public access will still NOT be possible in the Silverwater Nature Reserve.  However, public access will be available to the southern section of the Wetlands Corridor (via the walking path), whilst the northern section can be viewed from outside the fence on Hill Road.  Other areas within the Olympic Precinct will also be reasonably accessible (note the signs), and of course, Bicentennial Park, Mason Park and Prince Edward Park (Hen & Chicken Bay) are all open to the public.
Good Luck and Good birding!!
