Ruffey Lake Park, Doncaster, Victoria.
This 68-hectare park in an eastern suburb of Melbourne provides a variety of habitats for wildlfe. These include open grass, bushland and exotic trees. As the name indicates, there is also a lake. The park is an interesting, hilly place with several km of paths so is popular with people. The wildlife is used to the human presence, but not dogs. As I crept a little closer to the Long-billed Corellas pictured above, two large dogs came bounding up and away flew the birds to a tall tree.
Feeding in a bright red, flowering bottlebrush were some very active Rainbow Lorikeets. The plant is Australian, but I doubt if it is indigenous to this area. These birds have become very common in some Melbourne suburbs in recent years.
