Hawker to Leigh Creek

October 17, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

An early morning so breakfast in the room before heading out to Stokes Hill in the Flinders Ranges. We headed out along the ridge line in search of Grasswrens. It didn't take too long before a pair of Short-tailed Grasswrens were sighted. They were moving pretty fast and at a distance so photos were a bit tricky.

After that we headed back down Stokes Hill and drove towards Appealina Ruins. On the way we stopped for Orange Chats and Banded Lapwings. At the car park for Appealina Ruins we spotted Elegant Parrot. There was another opportunity for some photos.

We drove along Brachina Gorge and stopped at some of the fossil sites. There were Grey-fronted Honeyeaters.

We then stopped for the Yellow Footed Rock Wallabies and for some scenery photos. The Flinders Ranges is a beautiful location.

We headed out of the Flinders Ranges and drove up to Leigh Creek to check in for the night. After that we drove out to look for Thick-billed Grasswren. The flies were crazy annoying and the heat was rising. It seems like the Grasswrens were all in hiding. That really was the only dip of the trip for me but always another excuse to go back. We drove up to Lyndhurst and walked around the airport. It was very exciting to catch up with a family of Inland Dotterels.

Just for something different I took a photo of one of the smaller dunes.
