Barrananna Gorge, Gammon Ranges

Grey Teal (12) There were a couple of waterholes in Barrananna Gorge at most 30 metres by 10 metres. I think I have seen waterholes there before, though many years ago, so maybe they are permanent. Apart from a single heavy downpour in February there has been almost no rain for several years. Dead trees away from the creek lines and dead roos everywhere were abundant.

Cruising in one of the waterholes was a large family of grey teal, mum, dad and 10 ducklings. I am sure the ducklings were too small to have flown in, so likely they had hatched in the gorge. It was a delightful and very unexpected sight
