Far West Coast – South Australia

I spent a few days at Elliston. The weather was incredibly hot so I spent the most of the day swimming and having cold showers. Then I moved on to Smoky Bay where there were a few birds on the mangroves and rock shelfs to the east of the boat ramp.

Rock Parrot (Neophema petrophila)

This was the only photo worth showing from Smoky Bay. These Rock Parrots were feeding in the mangroves right next to the ocean.

I stopped in at Cactus Beach. This is the right-hander, I think it is called Caves.
