Cheeky twitch

After a rather large lunch of corned beef sandwich and fries (it felt like I was in a Man vs Food episode) we had to get out and do some exercise.
We had heard that the overnight storms had brought in some cattle egrets so we went in search. I know driving around the back roads doesn't use much energy but eventually we found the adult and juv feeding in some horse paddocks. No sign of the turkeys though.

Despite the drizzle we had another look for warblers around Lily Lake. Many of the warblers had gone but the weather had put most birders off so we had the place to ourselves. Really nice low down views of yellow rumped, wilsons, magnolia and black throated blue warblers were had along with an adult cedar waxwing feeding two recently fledged young. The most abundant warbler was American redstart with 10 seen including a stunning black and orange adult male.
