Sherwood arboretum is a small area that has been intensively birded for many years, and over 160 species of bird have been recorded.  It is known as a good place for crakes/rails and little bitterns, but none are regulars.  The ponds and the river are the best place to spend your time (see guide below).  A good place for beginners as 40 or more species can be easily seen in an hour.  
 
If you see anything rare or new, please email me and I will add it to the list – h.possingham@uq.edu.au  .
