Sighting Records at the Urrbrae Wetland

We have been collecting sighting records since October 2009. For each field trip we record whether a species is seen or not. The records are collated into the month the field trip occurred. The brighter the red, the greater the percentage of time that species was observed. The number written is the average number of birds in the species observed, if the bird was observed. An asterisk (*) represents observations of breeding: bird constructing a nest, sitting on a nest, or juvenile birds. A bird is recorded as seen if it is in the compound of the Urrbrae Wetland or flying over the Urrbrae Wetland.
