Scott Conservation Park
Went looking for the beautiful little Scarlet Robin and was lucky to come across a Male & Female going about their day, was also lucky to see the Spotted & Striated Pardalote;s as well and the very beautiful and appropriately named Red Rumped Parrot
Sorry for my lack of updates lately as the winter weather is here and my old bones are not to happy about the cold, nature has its ideas about that too, most birds with any common sence head off to warmer climates for some fun in the sun before heading back in a couple of months, I will be onto them as soon as they venture my way and those sun Gods start smiling down on us again, thank fully in SA that is not very long….
Scott Conservation Park South Australia
A small park featuring vegetation representative of the eastern slopes of the southern Mount Lofty ranges. As one of few blocks of scrub in this region it is significant for conservation purposes… A small park on gently sloping land. The principal vegetation is an open forest of Eucalyptus leucoxylon but large patches of E. baxteri occur in the southern portion of the Park. Elsewhere mixed stands of E. leucoxylon with E. fasciculosa are found. The understorey is diverse but usually dominated by E. cosmophylla and Banksia ornata … Scott Conservation Park is in a minimally disturbed condition having suffered only light grazing in the past. The park is largely surrounded by cleared grazing land…
Beautiful open stands of stringy bark and banksia understory provide habitat for a range of birdlife, including New Holland honeyeaters, superb fairywren, and red-browed finch.
