Lake Life


Even quite small lakes in Perth can have interesting birdlife. The lake in Mabel Talbot Park is only about 100m across. It is surrounded by suburbia and is getting quite shallow at present – but it often has plenty of waterbirds.

We were there recently and saw a Great Egret (above), some Yellow-billed Spoonbills (below), and plenty of ducks and ibises. However it’s a matter of luck – the next day there were just a few ducks.
