At the McNeilly Wetlands yesterday I enjoyed a few moments watching a pair of Hoary-headed Grebes do their ‘grebey thing’ – duck diving for some tucker in the deeper water. It is nice to know these birds have found this wetland right in town. For some reason I’ve generally considered the hoary-headed to be far less ‘urbanised’ than the australasian – wrong again!
I also ticked this Painted Lady warming up on the footpath.
I enjoyed my brief time with the birds and my grand-daughter enjoyed the playground.
