Fogg Dam In the Wet

Hugh and I took the drive down the Stuart and Arnhem Highways to Fogg Dam. As the monsoonal weather has well set in I really wanted to see what conditions were like.

I was delighted to see Fogg Dam teeming with bird life,including Royal Spoonbills, Egrets, Lesser Egrets,Darters,Pied Herons,Rainbow Bee-Eaters,Crimson Finches.
We had fun taking our shoes off and walking down the flooded road.
