Today I went for an outing to the local Bird Sanctuary. It is based around a few large ponds receiving water that has been treated at the sewage plant. One of the ponds is currently dry and they've scraped it out ... usually there are many ducks, coots and moorhens on it ... so I wonder where these all went? There are not many lakes or ponds around these parts! But in the bush and around the other ponds I did see a few interesting things. I've written it up in more detail here:
There are links to photos ... but I only have an ancient camera without meaningful zoom capabilities, so no bird photos, only a few shots of the environment - and a few bovines that allowed me to approach close.
Here is a list of the bird species I saw for those interested:
