Brolgas, waders and friends

  1. Here is a rare window into the intimacy and playfulness between two lifelong partners. See the female Brolga strutting her stuff on the wetland dance floor, enticing the male to join in. It was a thrill to witness this on our farm, let alone to capture it on video, especially with a beautiful autumn sunrise and the dancing mirrored on the water. With only around 500 Brolgas left in southwest Victoria, capturing this moment was a very special treat. Enjoy!

  3. Watch the Brolgas step tentatively through the deep mud as they leave the wetland. Keep an eye out for the two Grey Teal ducks in a cameo appearance at the end!

  4. Red-necked Avocets are such beautiful birds. Their very odd bill shape makes them look like they have run into a brick wall! This video shows the avocets and the Banded Stilts (foreground) using their bills differently while feeding in this shallow lake.
