Bird Photography at Glenrock Lagoon, 28th July, 2009.

This morning I went to the Glenrock State Conservation Area, commonly called Glenrock Lagoon. I parked in the area near the Kahibah end and walked along the walkway towards the creek. There were a lot of Bell Miners along the track and there were a few dead trees from the associated die back.

Down at the creek a few White-naped Honeyeaters were swooping down to the creek to drink. A couple of White-browed Scrubwren were foraging around in the leaf litter. They love to chuck the leaves all over the place.

I kept on walking towards the ocean on the northern side of creek, past the waterfall and down the road. There were a few Brown Gerygone in the trees twittering away. As well as quite a few Golden Whistlers and Eastern Whipbirds. On the way back there were a pair of Brown Cuckoo-Dove sitting up in a tree just next to the road preening themselves.
