Stuart Creek

Stuart Creek

After a long break from writing blog posts, due to work and the Christmas season, I'm finally back. I haven't been anywhere of interest birding in a long while, but last week I was able to head up to Stuart Creek. While the birdlife was not spectacular, and I didn't really get any photos, I thought I'd write a post anyway. 

Stuart Creek is around 15 minutes from Bruthen. Head up the Great Alpine Rd 11Km, and you will come to Stuart Creek Rd on your right.  Drive along Stuart Creek Rd for 3.2 Km, and you will come to Moonlight Rd on your right. Drive down Moonlight Rd, and you will come to a bridge over the Tambo River. You can park on the right-hand side of the road, just before the bridge.

Birds seen and heard at Stuart Creek were: 

Sacred and Azure Kingfisher.
Golden Whistler
Grey Shrike Thrush
White Throated Treecreeper
Yellow faced honeyeater
White Throated Needletail
Welcome Swallow
Wedge-tailed Eagle
Red-Browed finch

Hopefully I will be able to go back again soon, and get more photo opportunities.
