Kobe and I walk everyday, and our favourite walk is around the local wetlands park. Now that Kobe is getting better behaved, I can take my camera. Yesterday morning was a beautiful late spring morning with hardly a breath of wind, so I grabbed my camera, a handful of doggy cleanup bags, some dog treats and off we went.
The birds were all in good voice, with the raucous call of Red Wattlebird overpowering most.
The water levels are dropping quickly as we have had the driest spring for a few years. In a shallow pool were of Royal Spoonbills, whilst on a wire overhead was an amorous Crested Pigeon, making no impact whatsoever on the target of his affection.
Halfway round is an open area where Kobe loves to run off the lead.
Heading back, another pool held half a dozen more Royal Spoonbills along with a single Yellow-billed Spoonbill.
Finally, on the last stretch before home, a different sort of bird flew over, Malaysian Airlines Airbus A330s on it's way into Adelaide Airport, and a couple of the more common honeyeaters, White-plumed and New Holland.
