Rankins Springs Annual Bird Tours

Dam at Rankins Springs - Dionee RussellSplendid Fairy-wren - Kathy TenisonOn the 29th and 30th of September a few of us attended the Annual Bird Tours at Rankins Springs hosted by the Lachlan Fold Wildlife Action Group.

It was an early start on the Saturday with a 6:00 am loading onto the bus.  In the morning we visited three different sites and used one of these stops as a morning tea stop.  Lunch was at the park next to the Hall in Rankins Springs.  The food for morning tea and for lunch was excellent.  Lunch was interrupted by birding and in particular some disappeared across the road chasing the elusive Spotted Bowerbird that on this occasion wasn't that elusive.

Visit to Wirrimbirra Yalul 13 October 2018 - Murrumbidgee Field Naturalists

Wirrimbirra Yalul trees from rocky areaWirrimbirra Yalul  bush banana seeds in podA small group of MFNs and Max Harris, a local Koori man, gathered at the Mallinson Road site. After a brief discussion on the unlikelihood of adding new season annuals to our autumn plant survey list, due to the dry conditions, we decided to survey a different site off the Rankin Springs Road. The Wiradjuri name for the site is Wirrimbirra (keep, preserve, take care of) Yalul (always).

Wirrimbirra Yalul has rocky outcrops on a hill with gentle slopes that lead down from it. It’s several hectares in area but due to frequent rain showers which eventually became heavier, we didn’t explore the entire patch. On our arrival, Max pointed out stone artefacts (and their traditional uses) near the remains of a gravel deposit. He was very informative about Wiradjuri history and culture as well as the flora and fauna of the place. We had interesting exchanges about cultural bias with scientific names and common names, in English and Aboriginal languages. Max is well versed in all three naming systems and is very generous in sharing his knowledge.

In listing the plants and birds we noted at Wirrimbirra Yalul, the Wiradjuri names are added as they are recorded in “A New Wiradjuri Dictionary” compiled by Dr. Stan Grant (Senr) and Dr. John Rudder,2010. Words with * indicate they can be heard on the Free Wiradjuri Language App where they are pronounced  by Wiradjuri speakers, listed under the English common name. There are hundreds of words and phrases listed there to explore. A brief pronunciation guide for readers not using the App is provided at the end of the list.
