Leaving the Gascoyne

Last Day at Carnarvon

It was my last day at Carnarvon. I had to come back from Quobba because of my hand-brake and now I had someone look at it and it is all sorted. I got up early and had breakfast and had plenty of time, so I hopped in the car and went for a drive to One Mile Jetty. There were plenty of mangroves and a board-walk but no birds. On the way back I stopped at the Sewerage Treatment Works and took a few photos but nothing much. Last stop was the Gascoyne River Estuary.

I think this must be the southern-most range for the White-breasted Woodswallows in the west.
