Sunday was a delightfully sunny 26 degrees. Typically it’s jumper weather come April but this year we’ve recorded the second highest ever temperature for April in Canberra at a dizzy 32 degrees. Typically it would be late teens early twenties. We took the opportunity for another bushwalk… This time we stayed in Canberra as they were burning off down in the Namadgi National Park end of the ACT.
Jerrabomberra Wetlands is down on the old Dairy Flat Road. Contrary to its name it’s not in the Jerrabomberra region.
Poco got a work out with Miss Bee even having a short nap. We explored with a friend joining us. The loop starts with the Kelly Loop. Of the three loops the Kelly Loop is the best one and it seems very wheel friendly. ..wheelchair or most prams would be okay.
Bird watching hides make it interesting and we saw many bird varieties. There are posters in the hides to help you name them. Miss Bee knew “duck” quack quack quack which meant she was happy with her viewing.
The further Billabong Loop which extends off the Kelly Loop seems fairly deteriorated but some areas were captivating with tall reeds and bullrushes.
Woodland Loop was worthwhile except in one section there was a quantity of litter spoiling it.

Miss Bee has almost mastered the bite down Camel back water storage in Poco.
Note to self: take your SLR with you if you want the photos to look better…
Today we used some of the leaves collected to make a collage on a crayon and watercolour wash background painted this morning. I laminated it as she is currently at the age where she is likely to rip them all off again. This was an opportunity to recall the walk and view the leaves close up.
