Yesterday Duncan and I managed to get our timetables together and we did the winter bird surveys at Swallow Lagoon. We've never seen the place look so fresh. Here's a brief summary...
|This is typical of parts of the bush areas|
|There are 3 or 4 patches of open grassy areas|
|Carpets of 'nodders'|
|Spotted Pardalote - a perennial favourite|
|Trim Greenhood Orchid|
|White-winged Choughs - there was quite a mob.|
