During our afternoon walk we noticed these New Holland Honeyeaters bathing in a fresh water soak at the lagoon end of the beach. About eight birds flew in and out, ducking down behind the rocks and popping up again, making the most of the wet conditions. It must have been a perfect little spa to attract so many! Once they noticed us they flew away. I don’t like to think that we spoilt their fun, because they breed and feed in the nectar laden native plants we grow along the bank of the dam. We see some of them every day, but have rarely seen so many all at once.
This post is inspired by the honeyeaters and by Frizz, who is focussing on N this week. Do think about joining the alphabet challenge if you need a ‘new filter’ through which to view your photo library!
