Newtown Creek at Sunrise

Newtown Creek at Sunrise

This amazing shot of the sun rising over Newtown Creek was taken looking towards the boathouse at Newtown Quay from the newly built bridge one cold frosty morning.

The estuary at Newtown supports a habitat for many nationally rare species of wildlife amongst these are rare butterflies such as the White Admiral, the white-letter hairstreak and the silver washed fritillary that thrive during the summer months.

The creek is also a wintering ground for many wild fowl bird species with Brent goose, black-tailed godwit, wigeon and teal showing in number.

Fossil remains have also been found along the foreshore.
