THURSDAY 29 APRIL     ESPERANCE

After breakfast, we went back to Lake Monjingup. This time, we spent over three hours there, wandering about, watching birds, trying to identify the varied bushes, and just generally enjoying the little oasis of wilderness.

We spotted a Western Spinebill, for the first time, and a Fan Tailed Cuckoo.

Very symmetrical banksia

I was quite intrigued by an ant path that extended a long way, over soil and rock. I wondered how many zillion ant footsteps it had needed to make such a clear path? Amazing.

The rest of the day, I read and John played computer games.
