On the NSW North Coast we have Swan Pool (Hat Head National Park), Swan Bay (near Woodburn), Cockatoo Creek (Dundurrabin), Black Swan Drive (Coutts Crossing), Swan Hill Drive and Kingfisher Place (Waterview Heights), Swallow Road (South Grafton), Halcyon Drive (Eatonsville, Glen Eagle Road (Waterview Heights) and Dovedale (Grafton). It is interesting that Glen Eagle Road has a nesting pair of Square-tailed Kites, resident Wedge-tailed Eagles and, until the trees were removed, a nesting pair of Collared Sparrowhawks. Stephen Debus also saw a Black Falcon there some years back. There are a number of streets in South Grafton with native tree names which were named after they knocked down most of the remnant eucalypts that had survived until the time of the subdivision, almost as if this was some sort of compensation.
