Thank you to everyone who replied to my RFI about Deepwater Park in Milperra.
I visited the site this morning and spent just under 2 hours walking around the 
After arriving and parking opposite the paintball place, I headed west along 
the road into bush. There was hardly a bird around, apart from Magpie Larks, 
Ravens, Noisy Miners and some noisy Cockatoos and Rainbow Lorikeets.
I headed towards the river and walked back along the front of the river for a 
while. The only birds I saw were a small group of Little Black Cormorants. 
Thinking that the morning was going to be very quite, I walked back the way I 
came and turned in towards the bush and headed south towards Webster Street. By 
the time I got to Webster street, I had only seen more Rainbow Lorikeets, some 
Red Wattlebirds, and a single Olive-backed Oriole calling from somewhere in 
amongst the trees.
Heading back the way I came, I had resigned myself to the fact that this might 
be a very quite place with not much birdlife, when I reached an area where 
there was some birds flying about. After 40 mins I had spotted 2 Rose Robins, 1 
White-eared Honeyeater, 2 Golden Whistlers, 2 or more Yellow-faced Honeyeaters 
and heard an Eastern Spinebill calling nearby.
Then going back towards the lagoon there was a single Little Corrella eating 
fruit off the ground with 4 Sulphur-crested Cockatoos. 3 Scaley-breasted 
Lorikeets and some more Rainbow Lorikeets in the nearby trees.
All in all, it wasn't a bad spot to visit. I ended up seeing 29 species in the 
time I was there. It would have been nice to have been able to spend more time 
there as I didn't see all of the park, but I was still glad to see the Rose 
Robins and White-eared HE.
