Another great Sunday Bird Walk in the Warriewood Wetlands, despite a damp start. Great to welcome a lot of people new to birds and to that lovely place. Highlights: a family of Dusky Moorhens and their tiny just-hatched chicks setting off from their nest beside the boardwalk. Also the racket of an invisible Lewins Rail calling among the reeds. To hear and see this bird go to: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewin%27s_rail . We finished with Morning Tea, chat and looking at photos of some of the more than 160 birds that have been seen in this area.
Watch this space for our last bird walk of the year in November.
