Then we headed off and drove for a while to the excellent Hasties Swamp - the best wetland we visited on the entire trip. It was choc full of birds with thousands of Plumed Whistling-Ducks, Magpie Geese, Pink-eared Ducks, and loads of other common wildfowl.
|Pink-eared Ducks were common here...|
We also enjoyed views of Swamp Harrier and Whistling Kites here as well.... It was hard to drag ourselves away but we wanted to get to Chambers and check into our lodge and explore the grounds. And what a place this was, situated in its own rainforest. We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds and just chilling. After dark we visited the mammal viewing platform and saw a Sugar Glider feeding on some honey poured on a tree trunk...
