I have just heard on the news today that Prospect Reservoir (near Blacktown) is being reserved as a heritage area for Sydney. Though a man made wetland area, the reservoir provides important habitat for many species of waterbirds. It is also a nationally important area for Great Crested Grebes (at times the reservoir holds a couple of a hundred or so of these beautiful birds). In addition to the wetland, the adjoing area of endangered Cumberland plain woodland is just as significant (with a number species of restricted and endangered flora).
If anyone know on further news about this, I would be very interested to hear.
