Some snaps from today's birding walk, turned into more of a herping walk as I spent lots more time on a reptile than birds.

Dusky Moorhen

Royal Spoonbill with an unfortunate snack

Little Pied Cormorant

Then as I was checking out the back portions of the reserve I found an Eastern Brown Snake and spent all too much time watching it slowly move from one basking spot to the next. Had hopes it would be there as I saw the same snake mere meters away last week.

All too manty shots later I continued my walk and found a shy little Red-bellied Black-snake no more than 50m up the track, sadly didn't want to pose.

Coming back to the EB it had moved and curled up in a sunny spot

With the EB nice and relaxed I even "risked" turning my back to grab some shots of a Crested Shrike-tit

Not a good idea to turn your back for all too long though.

Australasian Grebe to round the day off.
