A day at the lake

PERTH’S unusually mild summer made Hyde Park the perfect place for our photographer, Steve Grant to stop for lunch this week.

In fact, it’s so mild that one pair of coots seems to have got their seasons mixed up and are already swimming around with a brood of five tiny ducklings.

A lazy visit from a couple of oblong turtles was a little reassuring following studies which showed something might be preying on their little ones, as there’s no little ‘uns swimming around, while the thick algae gave us pause to wonder whether the restoration works done by the City of Vincent will be enough to cope with all the nutrient run-off from the neighbouring suburbs and the decaying leaf litter from the beautiful flame and plane trees.
