Misty morning

Mist moving quite rapidly along Barratt Creek

After my previous early morning post I walked down to the bird hide at first light. In spite of my initial disappointment that the river level had not dropped I took time to enjoy a peaceful beginning to the day. There was a lull in the rain and the birds were wisely making the most of it, flitting from tree to tree hunting for breakfast.

Our forest of Leichardt trees – thriving in wet conditions, providing shelter and food.

So now the water level has started to drop, there are bursts of sunshine between the showers and we’ve just witnessed the joyful sight of the Ergon crew aboard a helicopter looking for the fault in the power line.

A bright red bird of a different species and one we are happy to see today.
