Winter survey count results are in: 18,786 birds were seen throughout the months of June and July the result of 471 surveys, encompassing 206 species!

The top spot went to our brightly coloured yet ever so gregarious friends, the Rainbow Lorikeets with 2431 individuals counted. They were joined at the top by the stoic Australian Magpie and the raucous Noisy Miner - all very familiar guests at the head of the table. Some of our smaller woodland birds also made an appearance amongst our these familiar species as well as our Endangered Carnaby's Black-Cockatoo!
