Had a great overnight camp after work on Saturday and Sunday at Wheeney Creek in Wollemi NP – approx 80km NW of Sydney. (Along Comleroy Rd from Kurrajong)|
At first we though we were in for a terrible time as there was a large group of young guys near us who had blaring music and a mountain of empty beer bottles! Fortunately they were only there for the afternoon and come dark they shoved off. Yay!
>From then on it was relaxing by the creek watching the birds go by and trying to hear anything beyond the Bell Miners!!
3 Glossy Black Cockatoos
Family of Gang Gang Cockatoos (including dependant young) flying around camp
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos
White-headed Pigeon (flying past)
Feeding family of Brown Cuckoo-Doves who were surprisingly “tame”
Superb Lyrebird (calling)
Up on the top of the ridge we had great views of
Other common birds around camp were
Satin Bowerbird (young male collecting yellow/orange leaves!!)
All in all a very relaxing 24 hours less than an hour from my place!
