On our walk we spotted some Rainbow Bee-Eaters. They are such a colourful bird and pleasant to see. The Crested pigeon and the Emerald dove were also spotted and noted. Great walk.

hubby and i went early and loved it. the track is sandy as you would expect and it is a easy walk. the car park is small so therefore there isn't a big crowd. Access to the water is limited . keep your eye out...More
