When my wife Liz and I were at Alice Springs a few weeks ago, the weather was warm and sunny, but the wind in the area was crazy. It started early in the morning and usually finished only at dusk. Not good if you want to take video footage!
I did manage to piece together some footage of a wonderful day we spent at Trephina Gorge, especially at a small waterhole where birds and lizards came in to drink in the heat of the day. I know it's probably only my imagination, but it seemed like big gusts of wind would come as soon as I hit the record on the video camera.
The animals in the video are White-plumed Honeyeater, Peaceful Dove, Pied Butcherbird, Zebra Finch, Painted Finch, Long-nosed Dragon, Magpie-lark and Ta-ta Lizard.
