Reed-warblers along the Loddon

It’s been an excellent season for Australian Reed-Warblers.

A ‘wettish’ winter and spring has meant good growth for their preferred habitat along the Loddon River – Cumbungi and Common Reed, along with a host of other wetland plants. This beautiful migrant songster will be with us for a few months yet before departing to northern climes in the autumn.

A few lazy minutes sitting quietly by the river is time ‘well-spent’ if you’d like to see a reed-warbler or two.

  1. gorgeous bird. There were a couple of them at the Mt Alexander golf course during spring .

  2. My goodness, this little guy is not spending on his wardrobe or hairdresser. He is so like the buskers in Melbourne, great songs and outfitted to blend in

  3. Hi Geoff

    I’m going to be at Yapeen for the next 3 days and would love an opportunity to join you for a bit of birdwatching should you be intending to indulge in such activity during that time. Contacting me on the phone number below would be best if that’s a possibility.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    cheers,

    Frank
