Birds & water

A quiet Sunday afternoon on duty at the bird hide at Edithvale-Seaford wetlands.

The entrance :

Upstairs viewing area :

All that lovely water :

And birds :

This little fella (a baby Chestnut Teal) strayed from Mum & Dad. A Purple Swamphen bore down on him. I was told it would attack and kill him. We held our breath. Mum intervened and all was well :

    Now that it’s spring and the rain has arrived, all the spring chicks are out and about. So cute to see the water variety. I love seeing the wood duck broods here. But unfortunately people don’t keep their beloved domestic dogs in, so mama and papa are lucky to have any survive. 😦

    So it was great hearing your little chick got back safe.
