Warrawong Sanctuary

Maryann and I headed up into the Adelaide Hills today, where we met a couple of friends for lunch at Warrawong Sanctuary. This small privately run sanctuary preserves local wildlife for the enjoyment of the public. Before we had lunch we took a short stroll around the sanctuary. Just inside the entrance is a large feeding station, and here there were a few Rainbow Lorikeets, and some Common Bronzewings. The sanctuary has a variety of habitats, with a few pools and areas of eucalyptus forest. One on of the pools was a very confiding Little Grebe. I noticed later that a turtle had swam past during this time. There are also some kangaroos and wallabies here, and some bandicoots all protected from introduced predators.
