Gluepot Nature Reserve Trip 2

02/05/2018

Just got back from another trip camping at the Gluepot Reserve in South Australia, was my second trip and I had to cut it short due to some wet weather coming in, still managed to capture one of the birds I really wanted to see so very happy about that, had only one full day there this time, am really looking forward to making another trip up there, might have to wait now til our winter passes by and get up there in spring...?
