Woodlands Park in Essendon is a valuable recreation reserve with two small linked ponds fringes with wetland grasses and lawn. An island in the larger pond provides some safe haven for wildlife. Picnic facilities, play areas and a neighbourhood house create a high use area. The park and adjacent Salmon Reserve have large well established gum trees and other native trees and shrubs.

    What a joy to see I'm suspecting the same pair returning to this nest site and again producing two healthy fledglings. Such a high nest!!
