Bird Photography at Bourke, 14th April, 2009.

Whilst leaving Willie Retreat at Macquarie Marshes, I got massively bogged with heaps of people helping push me out of the mud, all to no avail. I had to get pulled out of the mud by Bob’s winch. Thanks Bob. I then drove to Nyngan and saw lots of raptors on the way. At Nyngan I got some petrol and drove on to Bourke, which was about 200 kilometers from Nyngan. At Bourke I got some supplies and petrol and headed off to the sewerage ponds. Saw:

Pink-eared Duck(Malacorhynchus membranaceus)

Hardhead(Aythya australis).

Hoary-headed Grebe(Poliocephalus poliocephalus).

Musk Duck(Biziura lobata).

I then drove to Cunnamulla and on to Bowra Station, arriving just on sunset. I slept very soundly that night.
