Go South 06 -- Tyto Wetlands, Ingham

This is a great spot just to the south of Ingham township. Saw about 40 species of birds here on a walk around most of the wetlands freshly overfull after a LOT of rain in the previous two days. Tyto Tony blogs about this place; always well worth a read. John Young [of Night Parrot fame] had a major role in the design.

 Here is a selection of birds seen.

Rainbow Bee-eaters Merops ornatus
