male Variegated Fairy wrenThe weather was kind for our walk in Coombabah Wetlands; chilly to start, then warming up nicely and having had enough rain to lay the dust without making the tracks too wet.  We followed our usual route;  first the board walk, then the main track to the wetlands (where we saw hardly any birds) then up to the cut, along the banks and back down the sewer line to the car park.  
Bird numbers were not great at this time of year but we were able to watch a pair of Kookaburras taking it in turns to bash a larger hole in an termites’ nest, preparatory to doing their own nesting.  Some of us also got a very good, close look at a White-necked Heron stalking purposefully through the grass and apparently unworried by us watching him.
