Tresco West Fairywrens

As part of my travels around the edge of the Mallee country I visited Tresco West Bushland Reserve. It has a similar bird list to Goshschen and has many of the same plants and trees but is much bigger with kilometres of drivable tracks. I stopped the car in several places and wandered around looking for Bluebonnets and Variegated Fairywrens, neither of which I been able to successfully photograph before. At an interesting spot I heard the high pitched call of a Fairywren and stopped to investigate. I came across several brightly coloured males and their female flock leader.
