Splish, splash I(bis) was taking a bath

Playtime in rare recent road puddle for Straw-necked Ibis (Threskiornis spinicollis), one of seven splishing and splashing at Forrest Beach.

Might not get a similar chance for weeks or months with El Nino setting in and no Wet until late December at the earliest.

At Tyto, Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) steps out across a shrinking kidney lagoon (now two lagoons with a mud bar as evaporation takes over).

For the time being the fishing comes easier but this part of Tyto may be totally dry come December.
