Birds of the Murray-Sunset National Park, Victoria
Every now and then I come across a great bird sighting. It makes my hobby constantly interesting.
On our last day of our holiday last year we were driving through the Murray-Sunset National Park in north west Victoria. This is remote country and quite beautiful. It also has a prolific bird population, the main attraction for me for taking this alternative and slow route home.
I added several species to my trip list while driving through the park, including these Banded Lapwings. This species is found throughout southern Australia in suitable habitat.Â While they are widespread they are not plentiful anywhere. I have only seen this species on a handful of occasions, so it was a real buzz to see them. I think they posed beautifully for me.
