On Wednesday, I went to Serendip with my dad and nephew. I was hanging out with family while my mum was getting over an illness and dad decided to give mum a break for a couple of hours.
It was raining on and off, so we first drove around the you yangs for a short while. We tried to find the tawny frogmouth near the information centre with no luck. I later read that this can be rather difficult.
We also went to big rock. I loved the bush there, I hadn’t been there in ages. I’d love to return there to bird!
We got to Serendip just as a group of school kids arrived, which is always fun.
We saw this Eastern Rosella. I did hear another interesting bird but of course, Sethy wouldn’t be quiet while I tried to find where it was.
One of my main priorities was seeing any baby goslings.
I saw these two cape barron geese. I love baby birds. I later saw magpie goslings.
I got this cute photo of a kangaroo sticking its tongue out.
I met a lady who had the same camera as me but wanted to check out the quality of my sigma lens. Accidentally caught the wren with it’s mouth open! Feeling kind of smug, considering Glenn has been struggling to capture one.
While in an open aviary, we saw this rail and it’s chick. Sethy saw the chick first. Wish we’d gotten more photos!
An older gosling.
This bird was apparently sitting on an egg. I’ll have to visit to see the baby when it’s hatched.
Planning to visit again with Glenn this time. We didn’t get to check out any of the decent areas as it started raining again. Also: what is the best time to see brolga courtship displays?
