So was leaving the freezer bottles outside my tent in the evening, and finding them frozen solid the next day - no fridge required! Ice on the windscreen (that's a first for me in WA) and an unforgettable misty and atmospheric Friday morning. Then, 'blue sky' days and wonderful Dryandra scenery.
I never expected so many birds in winter. 50 species - that's a personal record. While Sean was seeing his 200th Numbat (Wow! Awesome) the score for me was........Echidnas 4: Numbats 0.......Ah well, a reason to return again soon.
But I had the ultimate thrill - my 'nemesis' bird - a Chestnut-rumped Thornbill, flew into a small tree next to my car when I was packing up. I heard the song and saw every detail as it did a 360 deg. turn. DRYANDRA - simply the best!
