An updated and expanded version of the 1989 guide to birdwatching in the Wolli Creek Valley by Neil Rankin (1923-2001), ‘The Birdman of Wolli Creek’.
With over 50 hectares of diverse bushland habitats, around 100 species of birds are recorded each year in inner south-west Sydney’s Wolli Creek Valley.
The new edition has 80 pages with tables, maps, photographs and sketches and includes bird observation data in taxonomic order from 1940 to 1999. There is also an analysis of the bird species present in the valley and their frequency since 1982.
The guide contains a detailed introduction to birdwatching for beginners and local residents and information about the best places to see birds.
