 Yalukit Willam Nature Reserve bird survey 

12 August 2023 

At 7.30 am the weather was cool (12 °C), with an overcast sky, a slight breeze and occasional spots of rain. Surprisingly, many new observers turned up, swelling the group to 23. 

Bird activity was generally quiet, with numbers down 12% from July, but a good spread of species. We had our lowest total count for 2023 (337); the high was 460 in April. Areas E and F (covering the Chain of Ponds) had equal highest birds counts (61).
