Gluepot Diary #4

Hart Lagoon – Waikerie

G’day All,
After getting a good night’s sleep without the wind, we opted to spend part of the day hunting up supplies for the camp at Gluepot where there is no fuel, power, water, supermarkets and no fires allowed. But first we took the track beside the Hart Lagoon, directly across the road from the caravan park. Like the wetlands at Banrock Station, Hart Lagoon was different to the last time I saw it – it had water too.

The water birds were in abundance – stilts, dotterels, grebes, ducks, herons, egrets, spoonbills, terns and gulls were all ticked pretty readily. The trees and scrub beside the track contained habitat for wrens, parrots, treecreepers, woodswallows,  honeyeaters, etc and a small squadron of raptors seemed to be ever constant.

A couple of small settling ponds not 100m from camp were ideal for some camera subjects…

Gluepot tomorrow – I promise.


… to be continued.
