We have been doing some walks with the Green Walks in the Park group of late. It is a joint venture with Parks Vic, Bushwalking Australia, the Heart Foundation and the local council.
This week the walk was around the Point Cook Costal Park. Lots of people turned up and as usual we strolled rather than walked. Took our time and saw some great birds. Lots of Black-shouldered Kites, some Brown Falcons, and a goodly number of waders and water birds. The walk was out to the monument to migration on the edge of the Cheetham Wetlands, and then along the beach.
On the way back to the car, I came across a Crested Pigeon that was sunning itself with its feathers all fluffed up and its wing outstretched.
