Hi Jason,

Yes, you have a good chance to get all the mallee residents at Round Hill in
December. I was there in December a few years ago and saw a good selection,
including Gilbert's whistler. January was not so good. It helps if there has
been some rain. If it is very dry, honeyeaters may be difficult. Look for
remnant pools of water, especially along the railway line. The water level
in the lake should be reasonably high, as it was full in September. Birding
around the lake is probably better as the water level drops.

The STP is fully accessible at all times, but water levels do vary from time
to time, and some ponds dry out. Consequently, migratory waders may not be
present. The samphire and saltbush adjacent to the STP is always worth a
check. Also, it is usually worthwhile to spend 20 minutes or so checking out
the samphire and saltbush at Chat Alley. This is a section of road about 17
km from town on the way to Round Hill. It is about 1 km in length and is the
only East-West strip of road on the trip.

Good luck,

Carl Weber

Hi All,

My wife and I are planning to take a trip to Lake Cargelligo between
Christmas and New Year.

Having never been out that way before, I'm after a bit of info.

Firstly, will there be any birds to see at that time of year? I've had a
look at eBird, and it seems there should be a few about.

Is there water in the lake at the moment? There is water levels reported on, but I don't know what the normal levels would be.

Any other info I might need? We'll be staying in town, and going to
Nombinnie NR, Round Hill NR. Is there access to the WTP, or can it be easily
seen from outside?

Many Thanks,

Kind Regards,
