A dash to Glen Austin

01 July 2022 - Glen Austin Pan

I have fallen a little behind with my Blog posts, but I have a few to update in the coming days/weeks

However, the were good numbers of the vocal Grey-headed Gulls

A small flock of Southern Pochard

A couple of Western Cattle Egrets

and I managed a record shot with an urban backdrop of a Pied Kingfisher that I have not encountered that frequently at this site
