Borah Creek TSR

We camped on the creek, around thirty people spread out among the huge trees along the bank. A late start, slow trip, leisurely tent raising and a cold beverage meant there was not a lot of birding time left in the day, but I went for a walk along the creek, back towards the entry road.

Fuscous Honeyeaters were coming down to drink, a large group of mixed finches played amongst the tree roots on the far bank, and moulting Superb Fairywrens showed off the last of their summer colours.

A call went out that a Goanna (Lace Monitor) was feasting on a wallaby carcass further down the creek, so I grabbed the camera to capture the scene in the last of the sunlight.
