Information about water birds of Walgett - a sign on the Tracker Walford Walkway

This interpretive sign, located on Walgett's Tracker Walford Walkway, has been been produced about water birds most commonly found around Walgett. Dharriwaa Elders Group ("DEG") is grateful to Ian Montgomery of for supplying wonderful photos of the birds that frequent Walgett. Clem Dodd, Gladys Walford, Virginia Robinson and Jason Murray were the main local informants for this sign, which was put together over a number of work sessions in 2014. Information was also gathered from the Dharriwaa Elders Group's extensive cultural archive, including its series of self-produced magazines 1999 - 2010. Walgett is located between the RAMSAR-listed wetlands Narran Lakes and Macquarie Marshes Nature Reserves and so is well positioned to provide a stop-over point for migratory birds. Bird enthusiasts will find much to observe in Walgett and surrounds.
