At Lysterfield Lake yesterday, it was very still and calm first thing in the morning. I wandered around to see what might be different – who or what was visiting the lake? I found a Darter bird (sometimes referred to as the Snake bird because of how it snakes its head on its long neck) at the end of the ramp at the lake. This one is a male with the black body.
Later I spied it (or another one) skimming across the lake as I ventured out onto one of the jetties to view the scenery.
