Another fine day at Gluepot and it looked like it was going to be a warm one. The temperature reached a high of 33.1 degrees. I spent the morning and lunch visiting the bird hides again. I headed to the Old Gluepot homestead hide first. The Willie Wagtails were having a great time first drinking and then bathing.
There were many Red Wattlebirds and one of them really dominated the trough scaring off several other birds. Several Galahs dropped in for a drink as well.
I could hear a Striated Pardalote and it too came down for a drink.
I decided to move on to some of the other hides. On the way I heard a Jacky Winter and stopped for a few photos.
I drove straight past the hide at Froggy Dam as it was heavily shaded. I decided to go back to the hide a Grasswren Tank. Here I saw many Brown-headed Honeyeaters again.
Again there were also Yellow-plumed Honeyeaters.
An Australian Raven also visited the trough.
The most exciting sighting was a group of Miners. I didn't photograph all of them but the following photo is a Black-eared Miner. I had only seen them briefly last year so this was a real bonus.
I spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the walks around Babbler campsite. This Red-capped Robin was down low and sat there nicely for me.
