Harrington Bird Photography, 7th August 2009. am.

I camped just north of Harrington in the littoral rainforest. There has been some bush regeneration work done, and it is looking really good. The Harrington-Crowdy Head Littoral Rainforest Restoration Project’s was set up to control environmental weeds and promote the regeneration of native plants. I walked along what looked to be an old road, so there was a bit of light getting in.

Earlier in the morning as I was waking up, there were the usual odd assortment of Noisy Friarbirds, Little Wattlebirds, and Lorikeets – standard coastal heath species. As I went further in to the bush I spied a few birds such as Eastern Yellow Robin, White-cheeked Honeyeaters, and some Lewin’s Honeyeaters.

Around the estuary there were the usual suspects such as pelicans, egrets, cormorants, and gulls. Near the boat ramp were an assortment of magpies, ravens and Spotted Turtle-doves. I think Harrington would be best when the migratory waders come back from Siberia and the place to go would be the lagoon.
