CommentIt was an early November morning last year, when I came across a hidden valley full of water birds of all kinds. Brolgas are endangered in Victoria, so it was a real thrill to note a pair of Brolgas among them. They quietly preened in full view (apart from a barb wire fence in between) until a group of silvergulls took exception to the Brolgas and they flew off. It was a gem of a moment being so close to these magnificent wild birds.
