Under the Ramsar Convention, The Coorong and Lakes Alexandrina and Albert are recognised as a wetland of international significance. Poltalloch Station has approximately 17 kilometres of shoreline along Lake Alexandrina and Albert Channel (The Narrows) and our wetlands have been identified as some of the most critical bird habitats in the Coorong and Lakes area. The proximity of the shoreline to our pristine native bushland and the farming paddocks, provides a variety of readily accessible bird watching opportunities.

This is not a complete list of all the bird species to be seen at Poltalloch.  Please let us know if you can positively identify any other birds.
