As I crossed the bridge from Goolwa onto the island, it started to rain and there was a spectacular rainbow.
I criss-crossed the island and did not find the elusive bustard. There were a few flocks of Elegant Parrots, one of which was happy to perch close to a Nankeen Kestrel.
There were also good numbers of Cape Barren Geese, and a group of Straw-necked Ibis.
Heading back, I checked out the Murray Mouth, but it was high tide so no waders to speak of. As usual there was a Great Egret standing guard just south of the barrage.
On my way through the hills I called in to Laratinga Wetlands at Mount Barker. The White-faced Herons were very obliging, as were the Black-fronted Dotterels.
And, of course, a visit to Laratinga is never complete without an Australian Spotted Crake or two!!
