Bird Species of Hale Lake
The Hale School Lake is an artificial wetland invaluable to local birdlife. Less than two kilometres from Herdsman Lake, the Hale School wetland shares many of the same bird species, including ducks, other waterfowl, reedside passerines and bushbirds. In excess of 55 species have been recorded at Hale School, with more than 50 of those having been recorded at the Lake. The Lake is an important resource for the students also, with science students frequently measuring the water and observing the environment. The informative boards placed around the Lake allow for easy identification of birds, and are aimed at teachers and students alike. Hale School hopes that the boards will increase your awareness of the wondrous birdlife at this school.
