Greenfields has a network of paths and boardwalks allowing the visitor wide access to the area.
Most of the migratory birds have left South Australia on their way North to breed in the northern hemisphere summer, but in the hour or so we spent there we saw over 20 species. White-faced Heron is the most common heron in this area and true to form was one of the first birds we saw. Great Egret was also here with a couple of the newly split Eastern Little Egret. Waders (Shorebirds) were well represented with good numbers of both White-headed Stilt and Red-kneed Dotterel, and a couple of Black-fronted Plovers.

While we were up there a couple of Australasian Palicans soared around us enjoying the thermals rising from the boat ramp and parking area. I cannot resist taking photos of Pelicans, they are such enigmatic birds.
I particularly like the cloud formations in this shot.As the night drew in, strolled along the jetty to enjoy the view. (and yes, this is still the sea)
