And the bush has friends to meet him, and their kindly voices greet him, In the murmur of the breezes and the river on its bars,
And he sees the vision splendid of the sunlit plains extended, And at night the wonderous glory of the everlasting stars.

Banjo Paterson (1889)

Herdsman Lake Birds

It's winter in Perth and most of the days are now cloudy, windy and cool. We are starting to get some good rains, so will we get a decent winter rainfall this year? It's looking good so far.

In Perth there's usually enough sunshine in winter to go birding at least a couple times a week, to good nearby bird places such as Herdsman Lake. This is a video of some of the birds there, going about their winter business.

The birds in the vid are Australian Shoveler, Great Crested Grebe, Grey Teal, Black Swan, Great Egret, Coots, Purple Swamphen, Little Egret, Freckled Duck and Australasian Grebe.
