Over the summer I have visited the Werribee Treatment Plant (the pooh farm) numerous times. Every visit produces a comprehensive list of woodlands, wetlands and shorebird species, great aerial action, lots of raptors and during summer many juveniles. On this visit we drove around the Lake Borrie conservation lagoons and came upon large numbers of Fairy Martins including a good number of Juveniles. The young birds have not learnt to fear cars or humans yet so using the car as a mobile bird hide I was able to get some nice shots of the young Fairy Martins.
I also managed to sneak a few pics of this little skulker – a Spotless Crake. These birds like a muddy bank and plenty of cover to dart back into protection. They are not often seen and hard to photograph.
Wonderful photos! What’s the black bird with the big feet?😊
