As the summer progresses, the smaller lakes in Perth dry up. So the water birds move to the bigger ones – and so do we. A few days back we went for the 7.7km walk around Herdsman Lake, which is just 7km from the centre of Perth. That’s central Perth on the horizon above.
The lake has plenty of ducks and pelicans.
And also these not so common Glossy Ibises (in the foreground below, with Stilts nearby).
