Kilcowera Station backs onto Lake Wyara where I went searching for orange chats.

These birds have a large personal space and it was hard to get close to them.

A 40 knot wind made it hard for them to fly so I was able to get reasonable photos but camera shake was a problem in the wind. Well that is my excuse for some ordinary photos.
