Every now and again an amazing bird turns up. Gluepot is renowned for them, and this winter a number of Scarlet-chested Parrots have returned to Birds Australia's Gluepot Reserve. It was an early start to get to Gluepot early. I walked down the track, and stopped and scanned. No sign. then a flash of colour as one then another flew across the track. A little further on one perched distantly, but always into the low sun. I think I counted 5 in the end. A flash here, a glimpse there. Quite a few different birds around, so the walk back was interesting. Here are two crops one of my photos, heavily photoshopped!! Not my greatest photography moment. For a brilliant photo of the same birds taken a few days earlier, see Chris Steele's blog here. A quick stop on the River Murray near Waikerie gave a few more photo opportunities.
