Wallabadah and Nundle Birding

Great Dividing Range.

The Wallabadah Cemetery is one of the bird routes in the Quirindi area in the Upper Hunter area of New South Wales. It is a common stop on the way up the mountains on the way to Tamworth.

There are always some Noisy Miners around here and I have found nests here in spring time.

There are a lot of old graves here and it is sobering to have a look around.

Besides these parrots there were Musk Lorikeet and Red-rumped Parrots. I headed up the hill towards Nundle and along the Peel Rive a short way to the Swamp Creek Reserve. It was so cold here in the mornings.

The black cockies were screeching their heads off in the afternoon along the mountain-sides.
