There are high numbers of Baillon’s Crake at the Lake Cargelligo waste treatment plant. The attached image shows 9 birds marked with arrows (actually more are in the background but are not visible in the resized photo), a common sight. I counted 13 birds visible at one point in time and I know there were many more in the area. While hard to estimate a total number, I would think that 100+ would not be unreasonable. Australian Spotted Crake were also present in good numbers but far fewer than the BC. I only saw one Spotless Crake during visits over 2 days.


The area is well worth a visit at the moment with plenty of other species present at the water works and the area surrounding Lake Cargelligo.
