Had an early morning today, up at 3:45 gear loaded and on the road by 4:10. The grand plan was to get to Marlgu Billabong for sunrise, snap a few birds in flight then come straight home. Well it almost happened like that. The trip was uneventful (no stray cows on the road), got a couple of pictures from telegraph hill over looking the billabong. Then down to the birds, well there was so many I didn't know which way to look. Managed to capture a few BIF and some that were just sitting. Spent two and a half hours in the little hide that is there before deciding that it was time to go. Got to the junction (left - Parry's creek for a coffee OR right - straight home on the black top). Coffee was calling, but the $15 minimum eftpos meant that I had to have a bacon and egg breakfast as well (not complaining). A casual trip home along the dirt road listening to some tunes. Good morning had by all (me).
