Kiltonga Wildlife Reserve (Part 1)

Last month I took my bird class to Kiltonga Wildlife Reserve and all this week I will be showing you photographs and video from our walk round the lake so I hope you will join me.  We discovered a new sculpture in the water of a beautiful Swan and the Coot seems to have taken up residence around it.








Female Mallard with her duckling which you will see better on the video at the end of this post.



The next few images are of views from different places as we walked round.  Everything had very lush greenery and the Cuckooflower and Queen Anne's Lace were in full bloom.  The last shot is a Grey Heron.

There will be many more photographs of birds in tomorrow’s post.  However, I hope you enjoyed our walk today and thanks for joining me.

Also many thanks to those who kindly leave comments.

  5. I echo Jo's sentiment on the video. Maybe it's the accent (which of course you don't have, right?) ; ) Accent or no, you have a lovely voice and the photos were nice. I like the mama wood duck.

  14. So Green and lush! You'd think that imposing statue might scare off the little birds!
