Hunter Wetlands Centre

055_1 I wandered across to the Hunter Wetlands Centre with my sandwich today. The conditions weren’t ideal for either picnicing or photography, with 30kmph north westerlies, but at least the sun was out.

Lots of springtime activity with birds collecting nesting material, and chasing each other through the shrubs, and many of the flowering plants in full bud.
