I went to Limeburners Lagoon, near Corio, with my dad and nephew earlier today. It was an adventure to get a certain 6 year old out of the house.
I didn’t bring my camera when I came to visit mum for a couple of nights. I really regretted it when we got to the bay and I couldn’t see any of the birds. We did see a lot of swans, spoonbills and the occasional white faced heron.
As we got to the boardwalk, we saw white fronted chats and dotterels. It was awesome to see as I don’t get to visit these type of environments often.
The highlight was seeing a pied oystercatcher. I was so excited to see them. It was a ‘lifer’ for me, if I’d seen one before I wouldn’t have been able to tell what it was. Dad isn’t a birder, but he got a kick out of seeing me get so excited.
This is just a quick update but I feel so happy. I’m making progress and they were so beautiful. I love waders.
