Cold and windy but no rain! Even sunshine. Lots of water everywhere.
The most interesting creature in Kellys Swamp seen swimming in front of the willow tree was brown
Ratty. Also 1 Shoveler.
A hundred plus Silver Gulls after feeding extensively in the mechanical rotundas of the sewerage works, lifted high into the air and swirled around in the currents then gradually made their way noisily back towards Lake Burley Griffin.
However the most pleasing spot, out of the wind, was around Tadorna Hide where a small feeding flock was enjoying itself. A Yellow Thornbill,
1 Grey Fantail, 1 Golden Whistler (female) 1 White-eared Honeyeater, a few Red-browed Finch, 1 White-throated Treecreeper, 1 New-holland Honeyeater, 1 Yellow-faced Honeyeater, and plenty of Superb Fairy Wrens.
It appears someone is enjoying regular use of Tadorna Hide, with chair down by the waterside, a well worn track and bread spread along the sills of the hide.
Also easy to see where the ratbag burnouter got in – just drive in where the cars park and squeeze in on the cement path between the adjacent boulders.
A happy morning.
