Microadventure: 11/52 Go wildlife spotting

The challenge to participate in a microadventure every week for a year.
#48. Go wildlife spotting

We managed to fit in some trail running and wildlife spotting at Studley Park last Sunday morning. This resulted in a quiet trail half marathon for Tracy, and along the way there was plenty of wildlife spotting. The Grey-headed flying fox (Pteropus poliocephalus) colony at Yarra Bend Park, Kew was a raucous as ever.

We were also greeted with a flock of noisy yellow-tailed black cockatoos (Calyptorhynchus funereus) up near the Studley Park Boathouse.
