These wonderful photographs provided by John Vogel show some of the birdlife to be found in the Swan Estuary Marine Park and adjacent nature reserves.

While by no means a comprehensive record of all species using the Estuary, the photographs illustrate the rich diversity of local, nomadic and migratory birdlife we are fortunate to encounter - and which we strive to protect.
