The Coorong is a special place of salt lagoons, sand dunes and mallee, all great habitat for birds and other wildlife.
I saw a wide variety of birds, including Straw-necked Ibis, the ever present Australian Pelican, Purple Swamphen and some distant Red-necked Avocets.
Some birds gave the quickest glimpse, like this Grey Shrike-thrush. This Yellow-rumped Thornbill almost hopped around my feet. Two Rufous Night-herons spooked from their roost and circled above me for a while.
In the roadside fields and paddocks were Galahs, Cattle Egrets and Cape Barren Geese.
