At the dam, we saw a large flock of pelicans on the opposite side but they were too far away for me to get them in focus. There was the normal variety of Spoonbills, Egrets, Herons, White-faced Duck and Red-knobbed Coots. But again, I just couldn't get any nice photos. However, a smallish flock of Sacred Ibis feeding in the middle-distance and their squiggly reflections in the water, provided one photo.

Driving back along the road, a Grey-headed Kingfisher flew across our path and sat in a tree. I took photos of it, but the branches got in the way.

As we were almost turning back onto the haul road which leads back to town, I saw a Grey-headed Kingfisher perched on the power lines next to the road. I took several photos of this bird while it sat quite unperturbed by the strange presence some distance below it!
