Birding at Yelarbon

23 July 2016

DUMARESQ RIVER - YELARBON QLD

A weekend away fishing also resulted in some some great wildlife sightings on the edges of the Dumaresq river at Yelarbon in Queensland.  Peregrine Falcons were without a doubt the highlight, with it being a few years since I have seen one, it was also a first sighting for our son. He also was impressed to see Emus in the wild.
