Narooma – South Coast

Bodalla State Forest

Last night I camped at the Bodalla State Forest, a great rest area in the bush. In the late afternoon I went for a a trek along the Lake Mummuga Walk. It is quite a nice walk in typical south coast country. There are heaps of Spotted Gums.

Golden Whistler - male
Golden Whistler (Pachycephala pectoralis)

This is a male Golden Whistler. I could only tell the females from Grey Shrikethrush because he was hanging around.

Brown Thornbill
Brown Thornbill (Acanthiza pusilla)

This Brown Thornbill has got a very colourful looking caterpillar.

Great Egret
Great Egret (Ardea alba)

Some moody atmospheric shots of the egrets on the lake hunting for food.

Little Egret
Little Egret (Egretta garzetta)

I think this Little Egret is a breeding adult because of the plume out of the head.
