A continuation of a series about our road trip.
9th July 2015
Our first day in Canberra, and hubby couldn’t look past the renowned Stromlo mountain bike (MTB) park. A disturbing start when we pulled into the carpark and the car next to ours had the driver’s window completely smashed and the car obviously rifled through!
The day was lovely, sun, no breeze and perfect for dawdling around. There were kangaroos everywhere!
I had nice views of the Yellow-Rumped Thornbill again, lucky me!
The Superb Fairy Wrens were out, but a bit far away mostly. And I got some super closeups of a couple of Galahs who didn’t see me creeping up.
Then lunch with the extended family and off again to another MTB park for hubby and Mount Ainslie for me.
That was an afternoon of chasing tiny little birds all over the place, including Spotted Pardalote, a robin that was too fast to classify, Yellow-rumped Thornbills, White cheeked Honeyeater, Grey Fantail, King parrots, Eastern and Crimson rosellas, Noisy Miner and a couple of others that I can’t identify.
