Yesterday was the Fogg Dam Reserve Open Day.

Fogg Dam, for the uninitiated, is an artificial wetlands some 70 kms from
Darwin.  Juxtaposed by grassland, monsoon and paperbark forest it¹s an
excellent spot for wildlife including birds.  Several organisations
participated including the Top End Native Plants Soc., the NT Field
Naturalists, and Frog Watch.

A group of about forty came on a bird walk through the monsoon forest. Many
more wanted to come but seeing the size of the group decided against it
(originally there were to be two bird walks but the other two volunteers
were apparently unable to come).

We didn¹t just look for birds but also at habitat and food sources.  The
path was too wet and muddy for us to get to the boardwalk but
I think a good time was had by all.
