Wappa Dam – Meet at 8am. Leader – Vince Lee

Rufous Night-heron [John Smith]

Wappa Dam has a reasonable variety of birds in and around the park. The dam holds a variety of waterbirds including Great Crested Grebes and occasionally Cotton Pygmy Geese. There have been records of vagrant species such as Musk Duck. Adjacent to some of the creeks entering the dam Black Bittern has been recorded. Nankeen Night-heron is often seen roosting in a large Fig tree adjacent to the toilet block.
