Laratinga Wetlands

Today we had a quick walk around Laratinga Wetlands at Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills.

All the usual suspects were there. Most logs had ducks on them. This one had Maned Duck, Shoveler and Chestnut Teal on it.

The Pacific Black Ducks are not shy, and came too close at times!

The coots were all busy feeding, and there were lots of pairs of Shoveler here.

We had fun tracking down the Rosellas, but never quite got close enough for a good pic.  This one was almost straight into the sun, and so the colours are a bit odd.

There were also plenty of Turtles lounging in the sun, and, of course, The Australian Ibis' waiting to "mug" the picnickers!!


  1. Pretty variety of ducks.. And I love the Rosella. Wonderful photos, enjoy your day!

  2. Wow! These Pacific Black Ducks looks superb and you have click wonderful images with perfect perfections. I was looking for some great works of Port Macquarie Photographer and got your thread. Really very informative post!
