Hi Sean and others,
Herewith my 4 favourite STWs, none of which have access problems for the
Tuggerah STW, about 1 km from Tuggerah Railway Station along Wyong Rd,
access from Ibis Street. Many good Central Coast NSW birds have been seen at
this one largish pond. The fluctuating levels allows for a whole host of
birds to occur and there is a good patch of Swamp Mahoganies on two sides,
and on two occasions since 1993, Regent Honeyeaters have visited the trees
when flowering in autumn. Freckled Duck, Pinkears and Shovelers regularly
visit, Sharpies & Marsh Sandpipers, terns, dotterels, Sea Eagles,
Hobby,Peregrine, Swamp harrier and Goshawks etc
Lake Cargelligo STW, NSW, about 1 km south of the town on the Wyalong Rd.
Close to the Lake itself. Good for waders and waterfowl, Brolgas, Crakes,
Chats & WW Wrens. Often gets a mention on Birding-aus. Black Kites &
Cobar STW, near New Cobar Tank, about 1.5 SW of Cobar. Again good spot for
waterfowl, waders on the adjoining GCT. Good for Red-winged Parrots, Crimson
Chats, Spotted Bowerbird, Painted Honeyeaters and Woodswallows in season.
Winton STW, 1 km NE of Winton. Qld.
Good for crakes, reedwarblers and grassbirds, finches and waterfowl. Always
worth a visit.
