Where? Where? Wedgie!
Day 27 : 27-05-2018
Survey Result for Saturday
Spotted Tailed Quoll, Pink Robin, Azure Kingfisher, White faced Heron, Green Rosella, Yellow throated Honeyeater, Black Swan, White-bellied Sea Eagle. These are some of the animals we saw today. No Wedgies before, during or after our Super Saturday surveys but we are happy with our observations nevertheless.
We tried a new route into our survey square by paddling up a creek as far as possible and hopping out onto the boggy plain. It gave us good access and excellent views to both sides of the valley. There was plenty of bird chatter from the bushy creek lines but very few flying over the open plains. One solo heron gave us a burst of excitement as it approached. Could it be an eagle?
With our surveys complete we paddled back to Melaleuca enjoying the calmest conditions imaginable. Due to the tannin stained water the reflections are extra vivid. It was like looking into an upside down glossy mirror.
A pair of magnificent sea eagles perched atop one of the Celery Top Islands as we neared the inlet that would take us back to Melaleuca. The sound of people chatting and laughing could be heard as we approached the wharf where the Roaring 40’s kayaks live. Par Avion had brought down 4 plane loads of travel agents to show them their tours and were puttering out on the way we’d just come. Left on the wharf was one of the pilots who offered us coffee and biscuits! That’s how we like to greeted after a Wedgie hunt!
Tomorrow evening I’ll get the video uploaded from out last few days here and on Monday there will be a final report to wrap up the expedition. We’ve heard that some schools completed surveys on Friday and had a good time. Some even spotted a Wedgie. WooHoo!
