Hi Birders,
There is a small brackish wetland at Toronto, south west of Newcastle, mainly a Casuarina glauca swamp and reedbed that is a nesting place for waterbirds. On 8 January 2001 I visited the site with Craig Arms and found the nests of the following species: 40+ Great Egret nests, 200+ Cattle Egret, 100+ White Ibis, 50+ Little Pied Cormorant & 1+ Little Black Cormorant nests. Young of the first four species had already left the nest, most of the Egret nests had young about ready to leave, but some birds were still incubating eggs or had very small chicks. This is a significant coastal colony for Great Egrets and I wonder if anyone else has been monitoring the site?
