I did try to clean the sign to make it easier to read, but had no water to wash the dirt off. The sign appears to read:
"At Swallow Rock Reach these birds can be seen in most areas due to the fact that the reserve is only narrow and follows the river bank. This means that the bird life will move along the timbered areas along the river. These lists are by no means comprehensive, however they introduce a range of birds commonly seen at Swallow Rock Reach.
