Today is World Wetlands Day.

Wetlands are a vital niche in the environment, with many animals and birds using these areas to survive and flourish.

A prime example of this is the Lara Wetlands near Barcaldine, QLD. These wetlands are situated in Central west Queensland, amongst some pretty dry and arid terrain.

This White-plumed Honeyeater is usually a woodland bird, but they were in abundance at Lara.

funny coincidence! we hiked 12 kms through a peat bog today, because it's too crowded in the weekend nowadays.
It is in a process of being restored after turf winning and some attempted agriculture.
we've seen only a few cormorants, but it's winter over here

(My family is from around Heemstede, Nederhorst den Berg, Utrecht and Haarlem)

@david
Also very nice places to hike!
Haarlem and Heemstede have very beautiful sea dunes nearby, and Utrecht and Nederhorst den Berg are bordering or even in, another big "wetland": Holland :-)

I grew up in Woerden, quite near Utrecht, a town on a clay hill in the middle of a polder landscape with lots of tiny canals and grass fields on peat
