Hidden Herdsman


Perth’s Herdsman Lake isn’t just a big pond surrounded by grass. Some parts are like that, but there also some hidden nooks and crannies. On the north side of the lake there are these two bird hides.


They seem like a good idea, since there are lots of waterbirds in the lake. There’s just one snag – the birds must know what the hides are for, because they keep well away from them. This is all we saw when we visited the hides a few days back. By contrast, there were heaps of birds beside the walking paths, where they can see us humans quite clearly.
