After travelling south through NSW during the last half of 2012 we crossed into Victoria and stayed in Rutherglen, a lovely historic town just over the border. Our site in the van park overlooked a small lake where we were able to sit back and watch the passing parade.
|Coot and Black-fronted Dotterel|
The dotterels were a pair that spent some time courting along the shoreline.
Some of the local feral ducks cruised around on the lookout for a feed.
And so too a couple of Common Starlings.
This Magpie-lark was also active looking for small prey along the lakes edge.

Meanwhile overhead a Friarbird was inspecting and trying out a Magpie-larks nest!
Cheers & Happy Birding!
