What You’ll See When Walking at Big Swamp Bunbury

Warm days and cool nights, that’s what this Spring feels like so far. Basked in today’s lovely sun at Big Swamp in Bunbury which is a unique wetland reserve, home to over 70 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and fish. Read more here.

We headed there shortly after our breakfast at Dome cafe,and soon upon arrival was greeted by these lovely ducks and its babies!

Awwww, aren’t they just adorable….

Here are some more pics I took along the way

Little bibi and her tree. I don’t know what they are called, they look like those bristled brushes used to clean babies’ bottles

 A walkway leading to a shelter where you can hopefully spy some ducks or swans swimming merrily

Loved this part of the walk as there was shade! Kidding, the tress are called paper trees I think, cos the bark peels off but not completely leaving layers upon layers of bark (resembling paper) still on the trunk.

So many flowers blooming, I need to know their names! For now, I shall call this a yellow flower (so creative, I know) Wished I took the other flowers though

 I spy with my naked eye…… That spot on the water was a duck.
