Rotunda Park is a small but significant block of public land on the fringe of the Newstead township. It contains an excellent example of Alluvial Terraces Herb-rich Woodland with veteran Yellow Box, Grey Box and River Red Gum trees providing a multitude of hollows for bats, gliders and possums. These hollow dwellers have also provided an important food source for a pair of Powerful Owls that have nested in the park in recent years. In 2007 they successfully raised two offspring http://connectingcountry.org.au/press/wp-content/gallery/fauna/powerful-owls-newstead.jpg. I have looked for them regularly this year without success. Tonight, Lachie and I did see a family group of Brown Goshawks on the north-western edge of the reserve. The three birds were calling frequently.
