  • Eagleby Wetlands Birds

    A few birds from Eagleby Wetlands last Friday. The boardwalk was closed off, presumably for repairs but the rest of the reserve was open. Quite ordinary results, but a pleasant morning walk.

    1. Red-browed Finch. I waited a while for one to perch on something but they insisted on staying in the grass.

    3. Black Swan Family. I hadn't been back since I saw them nesting due to lockdowns and other commitments. There is still a lot of dead vegetation from when the lake last dried..

    All excellent images. No1 with his costume on going to a fancy dress party.
    #2 The back lighting makes this a strong image.
    The repetition of the signets following a parent looks great.
    Reflection in 4 and 5 pattern and colouring of the duck.
    Great collection.

    Better a full bottle in front of me
    than a full frontal lobotomy.
