Perth Lakers 2

image

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).

  1. Love the compilation of the types of birds you get to see so close to the city centre.
    I’ve not been to Perth in many a long year, so being able to view your fine shots really does bring some great memories.
