Territory and Municipal Services want you to know about the bird watching possibilities along the Mulligans Bird Walk:

“Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary is one of the best bird watching spots in the ACT, with its different habitats providing a home and feeding place for more than 160 native bird species,” said Stephen Wilkes, Ranger-in-Charge, Mulligans Flat Woodland Sanctuary.

“Superb Parrots, Noisy Friarbirds, Leaden Flycatchers, Masked Lapwings and groups of small bush birds such as thornbills and weebills, are some of the native bird species you may see on the walk this spring.

“Swamp wallabies, spotted burrowing frogs, black shingle-backed lizards and sugar glider possums are also found in the Sanctuary. The Eastern Bettong has recently been reintroduced to the Sanctuary.”

Mr Wilkes said the walk is about six kilometres and takes about two hours. It is quite easy and can be enjoyed by people of all abilities. Just remember to wear sturdy enclosed shoes.

Wonderful – thanks!

They seem strangely untroubled by the election hanging in the balance. Beautiful creatures.
