Lake Ranfurly, Mildura, Victoria
Our Holiday in Victoria
On our way home from our holiday in New South Wales and Victoria last year we stayed for one night in Mildura. This provincial city in north west Victoria is a prominent fruit growing area.
We arrived late in the afternoon, so I only had a short time to do some birding before settling into our cabin at one of the many caravan parks.Â I decided to spend about a half hour birding at Lake Ranfurly on the northern outskirts of the town. This is just off the road to Wentworth.
The birding on that afternoon was rather disappointing with very little bird life to be seen.Â That is quite obvious from the photo above. This shows a few Black Swans, a small flock of Silver Gulls and several Red-necked Avocets. In the distance I could see many Grey Teal; at least, I think that is what they were – they were too far across the lake to be certain.
It was quite a disappointing visit.
