There were quite a few birds gathered at the waters edge at Blackbutt Nature Reserve on this day. I managed to get closer to a Swamp Hen than at any other time. Usually they’re very wary and will jump in the water or make a short flight to safety as soon as you get too close to them. But here, they aren’t as worried when mankind gets pretty close.
