At long last we have managed to go birdwatching. The weather was perfect for a change with a clear blue sky and not a drop of rain to be seen.
These Purple Swamphen were among a flock of 40 we saw on a wetland area during a trip down the Mary Valley. Cannot remember seeing such a big flock of Swamphen's before.

At our lunch spot we went for a walk along a forest track. We came across a large group of Fairy-wren's which kept us company as we walked along. There were Variegated and Red-backed, mostly female with the odd male.
Thanks Mick for the great day out and we look forward to your next post on the day.
