I arrived at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park around lunch time. Lake Hattah did not have much water left so it was quite a different view to last time.
It was quite warm so I headed out to Lake Mournpall for some lunch. I ran in to some other people birdwatching so had a chat to them about what they had seen. I then drove out along the Konardin Track around 2:30pm to find some Mallee Emu-wren. Interestingly I found them in the exact same location as last year although there were only 2. I only managed a few ordinary photos as they were hiding amongst the bushes and the spinifex. Still it was nice to see them again. I headed back along the Nowingi Track and then onto the Old Calder Hwy. I came across this dragon sunning itself on the road and it allowed me lots of photos.
I headed back to Lake Hattah to setup for the night and enjoyed a great night hearing Southern Boobook and Australian Owlet-Nightjar calling. I was up early the next day and headed out to some other locations to photograph woodland birds. I can never seem to resist the Red-Capped Robin.
A target of mine was the Inland Thornbill. I was happy to walk away with a photo of this one.
I had originally planned on staying at Hattah for another couple of nights but I decided on a change of plans. So until the next stop...
