Happy World Wetlands Day!

To celebrate World Wetlands Day I paid a visit to Narrandera Wetlands this morning.

Narrandera Wetlands is an ephemeral constructed wetland, which serves the dual purposes of filtering stormwater runoff from the town, before it enters the Murrumbidgee River, and providing a refuge for wetland birds and other species in a very dry landscape.

There weren’t a lot of birds about this morning, but I did have fun watching these Royal and Yellow-billed Spoonbills feeding themselves, and a handful of Australian Pelicans gliding around.
