This extremely hot weather lately makes it hard to get out and bird as much as I would like. On top of that, it's summer and birding hasn't turned up much unusual lately since spring migration is long past and fall migration has barely started. However I still enjoy getting out when I can and today I visited the West Perth Wetlands later on in the day when the heat had eased off a little bit. It was also a great opportunity to try out my latest purchase, a spotting scope and tripod.

There were many birds about today.

Overall, a good time in West Perth.
