It’s a glorious late autumn day on Port Phillip Bay.
The Altona wetlands on Port Phillip is one of the 65 RAMSAR listed sites in Australia. RAMSAR sites are critical for supporting wetland and migratory birds around the world.
Today the birds were there in force many feeding up for migration north as the southern winter approaches.
The Pelicans hunting as a pack scooping up the shoals of pilchards in their huge bills.
Egrets were flying in to join the feast.
The Herons were also there for the hunt.
It truly was a very birdifull day to be out by the bay – to be out in nature.
