A Day at Gluepot (Part 1)

Heading for the Flinders Ranges for a 4WD trip, my wife and I decided to take the opportunity to spend two nights camping at Gluepot Reserve. While this gave us only one full day exploring the reserve, we made the most of it by driving the loop track visiting each bird hide.

The hides are set up to view elevated watering stations and, while photography is challenging with combinations of low light, backlighting and fixed shooting positions, the bird life was extremely abundant with large numbers of honeyeaters...
