Mateeba Wetlands


My first blue-winged kookaburra. All of the others have been laughing kookaburra.



White-bellied sea eagle.





 Mobbed by a whistling kite.


Australian darter


Green pygmy-Goose.


Double-barred or owl finch.


Red-backed fairy-wren.



At least 3000 magpie geese.


Amazingly, two weeks into our holiday and these were our first kangaroos.


Intermediate egret.


Emu with chicks. I still don't know whether or not to quite believe this. I thought emu's were virtually unknown in this part of Australia.


There are a lot of impressive termite mounds in this area.

  1. Hi Colin I really enjoy reading your blog living not far from you. One of your photos today is captioned Zebra Finch but I think should be Bicheno or Owl Finch. Keep up the good work.
