Whyalla Birding 2019

Whyalla Wetlands

After processing and uploading my photos at Port Augusta, I did my shopping and headed south towards Whyalla. About ten kilometers from town, I found a camp near the train line and bedded down. I was awoken by a train hooting just after 6am and jumped in the car and headed to the Whyalla Wetlands where I had breakfast before heading off around the wetlands. I was after the Citrine Wagtail but did not see hide nor hair of it. I think I might have seen one in India. But I cannot remember. Edit, yes, I have seen them in the UAE at Al Ain and in Kashmir.
