Going with the flow

What a great sight, the Loddon River almost ‘running a banker’. With Cairn Curran at less than 12%, good rain over the next month should see a decent reversal in fortunes.

The sunshine yesterday afternoon brought some nice birds out by the river too – Spotted and Striated Pardalotes, White-browed Scrub-wrens (chasing courtship behaviour), Golden Whistler and Red-browed Firetails.

    Beautiful Loddon! Wondering if there had been rain at home and delighted to see the Loddon brimming. Anything in the Muckleford Creek yet?

    • Hi Chris – only a weak flow in the Muckleford Creek with pools being filled … looks like a wet week though so you never know!
      Cheers, geoff

    Wonderful images of the river. It is a wonderful place to go and rest and revive the spirit! Thanks Geoff!

    Wonderful to see the Loddon flowing. No movement when I was back home in the new year. Wish I could send some of this UK rain!
