Adams Creek Nature Conservation Reserve is situated just west of Nyora.
The 450ha reserve consists mostly of coastal, (sandy), heathy woodland and is surrounded by large sand quarries.
A small dam just inside the entrance was our first stop for the day on a recent visit with Dave. We were entertained for some time with the bathing and drinking by a range of birds – White-faced and White-naped Honeyeaters, Grey fantails, Little Wattlebirds, et al.
|The scrub around the dam was very 'bird-friendly'|
|My not very good shot of a White-naped Honeyeater|
We only 'explored' a small part of the property but were sufficiently inspired to return at a more seasonally appropriate time for a much more detailed reconnaissance.
|Getting a shot of a Bee Fly occupied me for awhile|
|Christmas or Jewel Spiders were abundant. We tried not to damage their webs|
|We only saw the one Swordgrass Brown|
|There was plenty of prey on the ground for this Echidna|
|I think this is a Slender Ringtail Damselfly - hard to focus|
|This garden Orb hadn't finished taking down its web|
