Easter at Gluepot Reserve

Birdlife Australia's Gluepot Reserve is always worth a visit and this Easter was no exception.

The weather was much kinder than my last visit a couple of weeks ago (when it was over 40C). This weekend it was 22C. A little overcast but no rain.

Below are some photos of the highlights.
