Birding Watching in Lake Cargelligo

Some years ago a number of birding-aus correspondents (you know who you are)
colluded to develop a reasonably accurate bird list and some routes for the
district around Lake Cargelligo. Yesterday the Lachlan Shire Council sent me
this link. There is still some work to do but here is another LGA trying its
best to showcase its birds.

Lake Cargelligo Bird Route Website Now Live

Lachlan Shire Council is pleased to advise that a new website
www.birdsofnsw.com is now live.

Birdwatchers (also known as twitchers) are a niche market for the Lachlan
Shire with Lake Cargelligo in particular, a popular destination for bird
watchers.

This new website promotes several bird routes in the Lake Cargelligo area
and aims to increase interest and visitation to the area by assisting
visitors in identifying various bird species during their stay.

The Lachlan Shire is home to approximately 230 bird species with 170 of
these species living here on a permanent basis. The remaining 60 species
visit on annual migrations, to breed or in response to seasonal changes.

The main factors which contribute to the Lachlan Shire being a great birding
destination include the many state forests, native reserves, extensive
travelling stock route, large areas of intact native vegetation and the
Lachlan River.

Lachlan Shire Council is confident the new website
www.birdsofnsw.com will increase visitor
interest to the area and result in additional trips to the region and
overnight stays.

Already many bird groups and clubs make annual trips to Lachlan injecting
much needed visitor dollars into the local economy by purchasing supplies on
arrival and supporting local business during their stay.

“Birdwatching in the Lachlan Shire has enormous potential and Council is
looking forward to facilitating growth in the year ahead” said Tourism
Officer Amy Strudwick.

To access the website go to www.birdsofnsw.com
or visit the link on Council’s website.
