Otherwise, my bird list contained pretty much what you'd expect. I did see an Eastern Great Egret in the creek, and just one Australasian Darter on one of the ponds. As usual, the car park was full of Noisy Miners, with an occasional Red Wattlebird and White-plumed Honeyeater.
Lilydale Lake is always well patronised: a popular place for picnics. Even when it's raining there's someone in the car park. However, it's still worth a quick visit from time to time. I saw crakes and dotterels here last summer. And with all that water, and all those reeds, something really interesting could always turn up. We are lucky in Melbourne to have so many local parks to visit.
