Sunday 9 August 2020
On impulse Sally and I headed to Albert Falls to do some birding.
Fortunately we arrived early and got in before the hordes of day trippers arrived. Having said that, the really early birds were the fisherpersons. And there were a lot of them. When we left just after midday there was a long queue of cars to get in to join the hundreds already there. Rather popular it was.
The day was lovely and sunny if not a bit cool though.
Below are a few images to give you an impression of Albert Falls.
There was one sad sighting of a bat tangled in barbed wire over a pond. Not sure what purpose the barbed wire served.
In all we recorded 77 different bird species in two pentads.
That was the day we saw our first Yellow-billed Kite of the season.
A quiet Sunday during C-19.
