We spent a very hot, sunny afternoon checking out the Perth Wetlands near Mitchell recently. Along with many Kildeer, Yellowlegs and Sandpipers there were quite a number of Wood Ducks on the ponds along with the Mallards.

We did see a Great Egret flying over the adjacent fields and along the river, but didn’t get a photo, and there were a number of Great Blue Herons visiting the ponds too.

The Kildeer and shorebirds kept up a constant chatter but the afternoon was fairly quiet on the songbird front except for Goldfinches and Eastern Kingbirds.
