The Wetlands Report~ part 1

A few weeks ago we took our grandson Cal out for the day to the wetlands park not far from where we live. It’s a bird sanctuary mostly, with a fab collection of birds from around the world, but they also have an insect garden,and otters, though they were not about this day. I can never remember most of the birds names, sorry about that!

Lots of birds to see and feed, and quite a few with chicks as it was, probably still is, breeding season here.

Cal wanted a rest every 100 yards 🙂

I took quite a few photo’s, all with the Fuji, and will post some more of course, but that’s it for now. Travelling far again tomorrow for work, so got to get prepared.

      1. I like rain, drops against the stone, thick clouds… But I’m sorry that could be less enjoyable your journey :/
