On our last visit to Bush Retreat it was Spring, and we recorded 46 species during our stay. This time it was Summer, with the end total down to 34 species. This is a small property of 10 acres with 2 small dams for water, and a gully that flows for only a short time after rain. The weather was very hot and humid, and the birds were not calling very much. The bird bath was very popular though in the early morning.

Bath with a view
If it got much hotter, I was going to try out the bath without fire under it to heat the water.
