I hadn’t heard about the Mitchell wetlands until I was chatting to a friend recently and he recommended them enthusiastically. So we packed up the binoculars and cameras to take a look and we weren’t disappointed. But again it was a rather cloudy, wet and extremely windy day.
First we walked along the river and there were many small birds seeking shelter in the trees along the path but not much action on the river which was high and fast moving. The only duck we spotted was this solitary character – a Pied-billed Grebe perhaps?
