The Baigup Wetland..



As much as I love the city sometimes it's good to have a change and appreciate areas like the Baigup Wetland, a 200 metre wide crescent of Swan River flood plain 7km east of the CBD, an important feeding area for birds in the middle and lower regions of the river. Glimpses of the Garratt Road Bridge through the fascinatingly spooky :) paperbark trees
are a clue that the city is just a stone's throw away.. not literally speaking! 


Did I mention that the bird life around the wetlands is big :) Well here we are at the beginning of a new week, let's hope it's a good one. Happy Monday, take care and stay safe...

  2. Fantastic photos Grace. It's nice to have a getaway place not far from the city and with all the birds there it must be soothing to hear them in their surroundings. The last photo is so appropriate for the area.
    Have a great week!

  8. I do love to walk in areas like this by water. Lovely views. And o what a bird. It reminds be of the huge sculpted pelicans that feature by the boardwalk at Hastings on my Mornington Peninsula.

  10. I still have a piece of a paperbark-tree´s bark, Grace, from 1999 :-)
    Is it a boat or a rubbish-bin, your big bird?

  11. The last one is my favorite!

    It's always good to get away from the city for a bit. I used to love living in a rural area. I'd still be there, if I could drive...surrounded by trees and birds and animals of all kinds!
