Wetlands

IMG_7288This large dead tree above the south billabong was a popular spot.

There were about a dozen Black-fronted Dotterells, many more than I had seen here before. It was interesting to watch one stir up the mud with its leg, then eat the dislodged something.

 

There were also about a dozen Australian Ibis, coming and going.
