Despite the blustery wind and many dual locked gates, we enjoyed a day at Werribee TF today. Whilst we missed out on Red Knots, Godwits, Ruddy Turnstones,Whiskered Terns and the Golden Plovers which we would have loved to see, it was great to see 5 Blue Winged Parrots along the Beach Road - they then fed in the middle of the track giving us great views.
The Pied Cormorants collecting nesting material to build in the paperbark type trees were quite amusing, as were the antics of what we thought were 3 juvenile darters stretching their long necks to tussle one another, precariously balanced only a metre or so above the water.
What a great place, and so much can be seen from the warmth of the car!!
