That I should take a break from posting about my European Travels and show the beauty of what’s happening around me in Australia’s Spring.
Melbourne is a big city but it has some havens for wildlife, especially bird life.
The Koroit Creek estuary is only a few kilometres from me and a wonderful place to see pelicans, spoonbills, egrets, herons, and swans
Laverton Creek estuary is a Ramsar site for migratory birds. There are so many birds there at the moment. I remember a couple of weeks back, a flock of red necked avocets flew overhead as I was cycling along. The sight took my breath away.
A short walk away from me in Newport Lakes, a beautiful urban forest with beautiful bush birds.
And a reptile or two as well.
Spring time is just so beautiful as nature comes to life. The heat of summer is yet to come, and warm dry days interchange with cooler damp ones.
