The State of Ayr Creek’s Birds

Updated: Nov 2, 2023

Ayr Creek is a compromised eco-system, but it is still home to a surprising diversity of birds, which were studied in March and April 2022. Monitoring with motion cameras also revealed exciting findings of Lewin’s Rail, listed as Vulnerable in Victoria, and Spotless Crake which appears to be a new species for the site. Both were at the revegetated wetland at the centre of Ayr Creek, and both appeared to be resident with steady records throughout the two-month study.

This highlights the conservation value of Ayr Creek and demonstrates what restoration projects can achieve. In this report, I discuss my findings and provide recommendations. (Image: Lewin's Rail).
