Peter Murrell Reserve--Coffee Creek 4/12/05

The Tawny Frogmouth nest that Tas Boskell told us about was found and photographed (see pic) . Tas had mentioned that it was to be found at the East end of the dam wall as you cross the little creek leading out of the dam nearest the car park. The mate of the brooding bird was sitting within 3 metres of the track and only briefly opened one eye. The large chick did momentarily put on a display of yawning, but that was it as far as major action was concerned! Bill & Els

Peter Murrell reserve is situated at Kingston just to the South of the roundabout just past the Antarctic Div HQ. It's a good spot to find endemics.
