Birds at the Burren Junction Bore Bath

At the Burren Junction Bore Bath, an artificial artesian bore bath on the outskirts of Burren Junction, NSW, the following bird species were spotted by us from June 2012 until now. They are listed here in four categories, according to the timing of their sightings. In some cases the categorisation indicates a trend. At the Burren Junction Bore Bath there is a dam for birds, with a central island refuge. In addition, there is an overflow pond for times when the bath is in operation. During the winter months, when the bath is closed, that pond is usually dry. Bird species that are listed as Vulnerable or Endangered, if any, are marked as such.

Bird species we have seen breeding at Burren Junction Bore Bath (with at least a photo of a nest or nest entrance) are marked with a clickable superscript "N", leading to the relevant breeding information.

Triangular dam at the Burren Junction Bore Bath, with a central bird refuge island; the dam is filled with water overflowing from the artesian bath that is not routed into the overflow pond

Overview of the overflow pond at the Burren Junction Bore Bath; at the time this photo was taken the water level was low and only some dabbling ducks were present

When there is enough water in the overflow pond of the Burren Junction Bore Bath, diving ducks such as these Hardheads will stay there
