Wappa Dam (Blackall Range) 16/01/12

We took a drive along the Blackall Range to Wappa Dam, it is the main water supply for Maroochy Shire and a really picturesque place.  While it was raining we did spot plenty of beautiful water birds and wildlife (despite me forgetting the big camera!  These few pics were taken on my little point and shoot).

These two domestic ducks/geese followed us while we were walking around the grounds at Wappa Dam.


Tawny Frogmouth

Frogmouth - this one looks a little different to the usual Tawnys that we see, is it possibly a marbled or just a juvenile?
Waterbirds galore all lined up on the railing above the dam spillway.

Nankeen Night Heron - well hidden in a tree at Wappa Dam.
