Cleland Blitz

A couple of weekends ago I took part in the Cleland Blitz, a working bee at Cleland Wildlife Park.

Over a hundred volunteers spent a morning using tons of mulch and sawdust, pulling weeds and generally tidying up areas of the park.

Of course the residents of the park were still there, and we had some close encounters with Red Kangaroos as well as some of the birds in the aviaries like Masked Woodswallow, Brown Quail, Masked Lapwing and Australian Reed Warbler.

The wild birds were taking advantage of the disturbed ground too, with lots of Superb Fairywrens and White-browed Scrubwrens foraging for insects.

Being spring, there were some fluffy ducklings around too. These are Pacific Black Ducks.
