Fivebough Swamp, Leeton, NSW

Red-kneed Dotterel

Australian Crake

Yellow-billed Spoonbill and Royal Spoonbill

Whiskered Tern

White-fronted Chat

Morning two of my trip was spent in Leeton with the main aim of seeing an Australasian Bittern at Fivebough Swamp. I would of taken hearing one too but neither site nor sound materialised. Doesn't matter - there were much fun to be had besides including a few more lifers.

NB: If you take on the perimeter walk (left turn at the end of the bittern hyde track), as I did, you might be disappointed to find the path impassable tantalisingly close to your car! Had to turn back and cover the 2KMs or so in reverse. Spewing!
