Oaklands Wetlands

This morning, I had a quick look around Oaklands Wetlands a few kilometers southwest of Adelaide CBD.

It is a nice place, but I imagine it gets very busy at weekends. The birds here are used to people so it was pretty easy to get some nice photos.

There were only common birds there, but I  enjoyed getting up close and personal with some of them.

The only ducks were Pacific Black and Maned ducks

Other waterbirds included Common Coot and Australian Little Grebe

Of course, Pelicans made use of the water, as did a Royal Spoonbill, whilst the Little Pied Cormorants used the not so natural perches

Finally, I was checking the nest boxes for possums etc, but this was the only one that was occupied
