While in Joondalup yesterday we popped over to check out the bird action on the lake. We chatted for a while with the gentleman above who informed us that he walks around the lake twice a day and knew exactly where to find all of the many bird species nesting or feeding on the lake.. someone this serious, look at the equipment, is known as a 'birder'. I'd say that what P enjoys is 'birding', not quite so serious.. and moi, well if there's a bird around that will stay still long enough for me to get a good shot I'm a happy chappy :)
It's the first time in a while that I've been to the lake and I was quite shocked to see how low the water level was but apparently it's quite normal for this time of year after a hot summer. You can see by the marker below how deep it can get after a decent rainy period. Will come back and check it out in a few months, or maybe after the weekend :) lots of rain coming this weekend! Happy Friday, take care and stay safe... p.s. check out those grey skies, no blue skies here until Monday!
