Everywhere I have been in the last month (except the coast) has been typified by a lack of water. Dams, creeks, wetlands – very little water to be found.
The very low water levels at the Jerrabomberra Wetlands is bringing a bit of a change of behaviour.
This Australian Reed-Warbler was exploring the dry mudflats rather than hiding as usual in the reeds, warbling I guess.
I have not seen both Red-Kneed Dotterells and Black-fronted Dotterells grazing together before.
Paradoxically, the Red-Kneed Dotterells are the ones with the most black on their fronts.
Let’s hope it rains soon.
