Dunns Swamp (Ganguddy) is at the headwaters of the Cudgegong River, created when Kandos Weir was built in the late 1920s to supply water to the cement plant.
I grabbed a shot of the swamphens as my bird shot for this week. I will show you a photo of the "swamp" tomorrow, it is not a swamp but rather a lovely lake.
Sounds familiar Joan Elizabeth, I tried to catch a shot of a purple swamphen a few days ago, not as lucky as you though 😊ReplyDelete
I didn’t have my long lens so had to get closer which of course meant they ran way. Got lots of photos of their white bottoms rather than their purple heads.Delete
I don't think I've seen these birds before, heads or bottoms.ReplyDelete
It is probably an Australian bird. I wonder what frequents your inland waterways. You will have to post a photo one day.Delete
