There's permanent water in the Leeton Wetland coming from the STP and there were LOADS of birds there too. Zebra, Freckled and other ducks, reed warblers, Native Hens etc. Great birding all over the place. It was really exciting actually, felt like Kakadu. Water everywhere (in the canals and paddies mostly) and birds, birds everywhere.
The three engineered wetlands along the river all have water in them, in the Murrimbidgee Irrigation Area state forests around the bridge near Yanco and the Euroley Road bridge. The one between Euroley rd and Irrigation way, whose name escapes me, was going off, but with mostly 'common' birds. Hundreds of SC Cockatoos and Little Corellas in a mixed flock. Then THOUSANDS of bats after dark, Little Red Flying Fox I am led to believe.
Went to Wattle Road Dam in Binya, which had a puddle in the bottom about 4x6m in area. That's where I saw the Turqs. They were incredibly flighty and actually tough to get a good look at, but it's either a Turq or a Blue Wing and well, that seems pretty unlikely.
Hi Sandra,Copied the group in for information.

Where near leeton? I know Binya forest is a reliable spot, although wouldn't be much water in the dams there by now
