Hi All,

For what it's worth, I would certainly nominate Mulligan's Flat, as it has such a variety of habitats.... was over there yesterday ..

The big dam had freckled and pink-eared ducks, shovellers, grebes etc
The small birds were out in force ... thornbills, robins, jacky winters,  honeyeaters, speckled warblers, treecreepers, varied sittellas ...
Large birds - kookaburras, even saw some king parrots there amongst the other parrots, choughs ...

It is a great place during all seasons and you can walk for as long as you like or just have a quick visit. Easy walking for those that don't like hills.

Parks and Conservation is preparing for its website examples of ‘favourite spots’ for various purposes, including birdwatching.  They would appreciate comments on particular parks/reserves with species of interest, seasonality etc.   I would probably nominate Jerra Wetlands, Callum Brae and Campbell Park.  Do others have favourites (with comments on species, seasonality etc)?  They are looking for a nominal ‘top five’ but it will probably turn out to be more open-ended, over time.  Comparisons are difficult.  For example I wouldn’t know how to compare Mulligans Flat vs Lake Ginn vs The Pinnacle, so I think it’s fairly top-of-head.
