Busselton and Beyond

They call it “Busso” and “Bunno” for Bunbury. I laughed my head off when I first heard it on the radio. I travelled a bit north of the town to the Wonnerup Beach Trail where the inlet was full of blue-green algae. It stunk and it was black. OOh it was bad.

White-headed Stilt


White-headed Stilt (Himantopus leucocephalus)

Grey Teal


Grey Teal (Anas gracilis)

This Grey Teal was slurping up all the pond scum. yuk!

White-faced Heron


White-faced Heron (Egretta novaehollandiae)

You can see all the saltbush beneath this White-faced Heron. Typical estuary plants.

Red-tailed Black-cockatoo


Red-tailed Black-cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus banksii naso)

Just before I got to Collie, I stopped to sort out some of my gear and was visited by four Red-tailed Black-cockatoos. So I took their photos.
