Fremington Creek

14:00 I snapped Maurice’s bedraggled Spoonbill in the creek this afternoon. It most certainly had an injured foot and was limping badly. I first saw this bird at Anchor wood bank a few weeks ago where it was in much better condition and only limping a bit – seems like the poor bird has deteriorated badly. The first picture shows it limping.
BTW the spotted red was still present in the creek.
