...as it is my latest obsession...I took a million photos.
I was going to put one on my new photo blog Wannabe Photographer tomorrow, but there were way too many, so I thought I share some here.
Oh, by the way, if you haven't seen my new blog yet....pop over and check it out....please....NOW.
Yes, I'm bossy! Just click here.
You're back already?
You did go there, didn't you??
So anyway, this morning, as we often do, Miss3 and I went to the duck pond armed with Weet Bix Bites (because no one eats them) because we had no old bread (because everyone eats that).
The ducks saw us opening a packet and swam over looking hopeful.
Unfortunately they weren't keen on the Weet Bix Bites (I don't blame them.)
But the greedy ibises snapped them up.
Then we saw a lovely family of ducks. I'm assuming they're a family, even if they are all different colours!
Miss 3 had a swing,
And tried to go down the slide...again. But was too scared...again.
I was admiring the glittery water fountain and wanted to capture the diamond like sparkle on the water.
And I did....YES!
Then we walked on and found some of these nesting in the trees.
There is a huge flock of these wild cockatoos (called Little Corellas, I discovered after a bit of Googling) and they fly around the town making a lot of noise. I'd never seen them this close.
Awww....love birds. There were lots of *couples*, how sweet.
Then suddenly, as I was snapping away, they all took flight!
Hundreds of them! Noisy and circling around the park.
They were beautiful.
And then they roosted again in the big tree.
You can't see them? Look closer.
Back at the car I spotted a Great Eastern Egret. I haven't seen one here before. Bad picture but it was all the way across the pond.
And that was it. Our day at the duck pond. WOW.
Goodbye Mr Ibis...see you next time.
