Buffaloes at the sewage farm
Bearers of buffalo dung
The sewage farm
Sewage farm scenic
Painted Stork roundabout
Our first scheduled stop was a sewage settlemet area with an amazing amount of birdlife. There were abundant Ruddy Shelducks, Comb Ducks, loads of dabbking ducks including massive Spot-billed Ducks, lots of waders including Little and Temminck's Stints and plentiful Wood and Marsh Sandpipers. The were ibises galore and Spoonbills and in the distance several thousand flamingos took to the air. It was a great place at which we could have done with more time, but ho hum...
We spent an inordinate amount of time at a roundabout which had breeding Painted Storks. I am not sure who was most bemused by the invasion, the locals or the storks.
