Keen birdwatchers gathered at Lake Neverfill 5km east of Roma on the Warrego HIghway to attend the Birdwatching Tour organised by BOOBOOK on Friday, 24th May 2013.


After a night of rain the morning started clear and crisp as the sun rose.  The morning was led by BOOBOOK'S Principal Ecologist, Craig as well as Senior Ecologist Richard, Fauna Spotter Dave and Field Assistant Ange all in attendance to assist the birdwatchers present.


A total of 42 different bird species were spotted.  Lake Neverfill is a great spot for anyone keen on a spot of bird watching.  A dingo was also spotted.
