Hi All


    Called into the Gulpa Creek Reedbeds at Mathoura NSW yesterday and in
the last fortnight the water has entered the reedbeds up around the

A couple of nice sightings were Great-crested Grebe (1) Blue-billed Duck (1)
Hardhead (3) Grey Teal (2) Little Pied Cormorants (3) and a few Swans.

Whilst not many birds, there is water everywhere in the forest and paddocks
so the birds are quite dispersed. Numerous Pacific Herons seen travelling
from Tocumwal to Mathoura.  

I called back to the car for a cuppa and on returning to search the reeds
again the only birds to be seen were the Cormorants.the rest had disappeared
into the extensive reeds.   Just a matter of timing and good luck. 


Happy birding everyone.
