Centennial Parklands is a wildlife haven in the heart of the Sydney CBD. Spring is a great time of year to visit the Parklands to see ducklings, cute chicks, baby bat (pups) and an abundance of wildlife caring for their young in their nesting and breeding sites.
Right now in the Parklands visitors can see:
Pacific Black Duck ducklings at Kensington Pond
Wood Duck ducklings at Kippax Lake
Tawny Frogmouth Chick and Grey-headed Flying-fox pups at Lachlan Swamp
Swamphens and Moorhens preparing to nest in various ponds
A number of other birds nesting, Butcherbirds, Noisy Miners etc.
Check out these super adorable pictures taken by our volunteer Tony Spira of new baby ducklings and Grey-headed Flying-fox pups. Thanks for sharing with us Tony!
If you capture any cute wildlife when visiting the Parklands share your images with us by tagging us on social using @centparklands #centennialparklands or email them with permission to use via firstname.lastname@example.org
