Our first stop off point was Jack Smith game reserve, a duck shooting site in season, but thankfully we were out of season. There is a rough dirt road down to a series of freshwater lakes close to 90 mile beach. On the way we met a blue tongue lizard.
At the far end of the dirt road we hit the aptly named 90 mile beach. Just inland was a waterway filled with waders including red capped plovers, the photo below showing both male and female.
And a new spot for us was the red necked avocet
A bush walk later on revealed some more new birds for us, including a golden headed cisticola
And a few we have seen before, such as a brush cuckoo
and red browed finch
