Every time I enter the park, I close my eyes and just listen to the symphony of birds. I've tried to count the different ones on several occasions but have never succeeded. Their sound fills the air and when you open your eyes you are rewarded with a kaleidoscope of green. The hills, the trees, the ferns and the water plants with the clear blue sky as a backdrop have you wondering which way to look.
A path beckons you to wander into the park, which I do carefully, as the way in is a little steep and slippery after the morning's rain. The track flattens quickly and then winds its way for 600m around three ponds that are almost bursting at the seams. The two biggest ponds are home to lots of different water birds and plants.
