Hard Work Rewarded with a Fantastic Bird Show at Fogg Dam

Hard Work Rewarded with a Fantastic Bird Show at Fogg Dam

We had a great morning at Breakfast with the Birds at Fogg Dam on Sunday 29 October. We did 7 surveys for the Aussie Backyard Bird Count in different habitats and recorded 41 different species.

Thank-you to our sponsors Litchfield Council and Tim from Northern Territory Parks and Wildlife.

This was a great way to bring the community together........and the presence of some international guests, showed the significance of the site.

Congratulations to Friends of Fogg Dam for all their hard work in maintaining and restoring the habitats in this reserve.

Species sighted were:
Arafura Fantail
Australasian Darter
Australian Grebe
Black Kite
Black-necked Stork
Blue Faced Honey Eater

Everyone agreed that it should be an event that is done more often. It is so important to take time out to observe the outcomes from a group of like minded people banding together to improve the local environment for the benefit of the whole community.

Thank you to Jan Martin from FOFD for the wonderful image.
