We spent several beautiful warm days based in Bermagui over new years. Some birding highlights were:

  • Striated Heron, Reef Egret and Pied & Sooty Oystercatchers in Bemagui Harbour along with the usual curlew and godwits.
  • Male Musk Duck and Swamp Harrier at Long Swamp.
  • Nesting Hooded Plover (1x), Little Terns (2x) and Red-capped Plover (1x) at Wallaga Lake. Close to 30 Little Terns present.
  • Many Figbirds at Bermagui golf course and along the main street as well as in Narooma on the drive down.
  • Superb Lyrebird (heard), Wonga Pigeons, Cicadabird, Rufous Fantail, Variegated Fairy-wrens, Black-faced Monarchs etc along the rainforest walk in Bermagui State Forest.
