Riverina Region of NPWS (based at Griffith) should be contacted before going into Round Hill Nature Reserve. Under the NPWS definition a Nature Reserve has no public access except with the permission of NPWS (NR's are for scientific and educational purposes not for recreation). hey will have no problems with you accessing the reserve probably only asking for a species list in return. They may be able to tell you the best spots for bird watching, and will be able to inform you of local conditions and access (I would say Whooey Tank is the best spot for a trailer, but the wheat paddock area is also possible). Their contact number is (02) 6966 8100. This is not a new rule and is particularly relevant at the moment wth the fire situation in NSW (if no one knows you are there, they can't assist you in an emergency situation).

  Hi all

Making my second attempt to reach Round Hill in a couple of weeks (last time
the road was definitely not negotiable - but fabulous mud if you like that
sort of thing).

I wonder if anyone could let me know good localities for: Gilbert's
Whistler, Sthn Scrub Robin and Ground Cuckoo Shrike? Also any especially
good campsites for a camper trailer.

Haven't noticed any trip reports from Round Hill of late, but if anyone has
there recently I would be very interested to hear.

Many thanks in advance

Pat O'Malley

PS high point of the day: a young (White backed) Magpie learning good habits
by diving straight into a banksia in my garden and raiding a Blackbird's
nest. I'm sure it emerged licking its lips. The parent was looking on: so I
suspect the young bird was led to a target by the parent which left the rest
to instinct.
