Pleasant Sunday evening

Hugh worked a shift at the Saville where I picked him up and then we went to Mindil, where Hughie became part of the buskers act, steadying his ladder whilst he juggled flaming sticks.

Being towards the end of the dry, there is not a lot of water,
nor are there huge flocks of birds although still plentiful.
We saw Egrets, Magpie Geese, a couple of Jacanas,some Glossy Ibis (click here for more information) etc
The flowers are still pretty though.
