I had visited Tempe wetlands four days earlier, but that visit was the last part of a walk down Wolli Ck and I dint spend very much time in the area. So I decided to go back – starting early in the day.
I started with several slow circuits of the wetlands, seeing what birds were out. The first thing I noticed was how dry it was – especially the third pool. A lot of it had dried up –
There were the usual birds around, and it was good to see some of the skinks out enjoying the Sun.
I then walked up onto the Golf Driving Range and along the track out to the Wastelands. It was quite windy in this more exposed area – and I didn’t see to many birds. The same walking around Tempe Reserve. I did stop to photograph some of the Welcome Swallows flying close to the grass.
I then made one more circuit of the Wetlands before heading home. Not as many birds as some other recent visits – but it was quite windy.
