August 15th.

We awoke this morning to the chatter of a flock of Carnaby's Black Cockatoos, sometimes known as the Short-billed Black Cockatoo. They are a large black bird with white feathers in their tail. They are endemic to south-western Australia. (Note the blue sky..I have cheated with this photo!!)

  • Black Cockatoos
    The day was fine so we hurried off for a walk...only one hour through the bush, and we returned to our rig just in time to miss the first shower of rain. Since then it has been raining and blowing most of the day.
  • We have come further north to the Mt Trio Bush Camping Park which is just outside the boundary of the National Park. We are safe here from large falling branches and any minor flooding well as this we have internet connection. It is a pretty park which we hope to explore further if tomorrow dawns fine. The evening is certainly cold so we are glad of our warm rig. In fact there has been snow forecast for the higher peaks of the Stirling ranges.
