Thought we would try this for a complete change. We are not mad keen birdwatchers, just like them enough to be able to name a dozen or so. Ray our tour guide picked us up from our resort on the Cable Beach side of town (extra fee for this) as we did not wan tto bring our hire car out on the unsealed red road and risk losing our insurance. Ray is very knowledgeable, not only about birds but also the other wildlife (and huge cattle) that he drove us past en route to the Kidneybean claypan which still had water, so attracted a huge range - little birds like tiny roadrunners to back swans and pelicans. During our scenic tour of the district over 2 - 3 hours, we also saw a couple of different kinds of wallabies and a mulga snake from our 4WD transport . Great to have Ray, such an experienced birdspotter who also set up the tripod mounted telescopes so we could see cute bright yellow chats and several differnt kinds of birds of prey.
