Yesterday was an exhilarating bright warm late winter Saturday. Clouds of tiny midge-like flies reminded me that biting mosquitos would soon plague my marsh days; thank goodness for insect repellent!
The light was harsh, but sitting on the riverbank with the cattle behind me, watching marsh wildlife from a comfortable folding chair, was an enjoyable and welcome activity. I was 150 metres from the heronry, so a couple of the videos were affected by heat haze.
