Ecotour with Pete and Deb

It was a great morning for an ecotour today with Pete and Deb. Although the Marlo estuary and the Snowy were quite brown after heavy rain high in the catchment last week, there was plenty to see. After the resident Seal waved us off from the Marlo Jetty, the birds put on a show, with Little Terns (recently arrived from Siberia), Hooded Plovers, Oystercatchers, Spoonbills, Cormorants, Darters and more. Eastern Water Dragons (adults and babies) were sunning themselves on the rocks as Whistling Kites cruised above. As we were checking out a Sea Eagles nest, a Heli Bomber flew past on its way to one of the local bush fires (most started by lightning storms over the past week).
