At the end of March, we headed 10,000 miles to Australia, to spend three weeks checking out the Aussie wildlife, wild places and culture, plus hooking up with old friends. We spent two weeks in north Queensland, before flying to Sydney.
Posted 31st March:
After 17 hours we've arrived in Perth and notched up the first bird of the trip, a Willie Wagtail sitting on a gate sign. True to form, it flew off just as I got my phone out, but I still captured it. Outside, the sun had set and a large roost of Rainbow Lorikeets was assembling in nearby trees. It's about 29 degrees here. One more flight and then we can relax.
