Ocean Grove Nature Reserve
The Ocean Grove Nature Reserve is only remaining place of native woodland left on the Bellarine Peninsula. I love it as its one of the few ‘bush’ areas close to home accessibly by public transport.
It has a lot of beautiful birds there, but also a lot of other plants and animals. Well worth becoming a regular haunt.
The latter post was a brilliant trip. We found lorikeet hybrids while walking there and found our first pink robin. We also documented a lot of fungi.
In 2016, I visited the nature reserve to look for moths as part of a GFNC excursion. The following posts document the mothers and other animals we saw on this visit.
Lake Lorne and the nearby Mcleods Waterhole support a healthy population of species of ducks that are normally difficult to find. It’s become one of my favourite spots to look for freckled and blue billed ducks.
I haven’t visited Queenscliff as much as I would have liked, due to its distance from the CBD.
