Pelican Island trip

Another trip to Pelican Island on the 15th January for the bird club to count the waders was a top day as usual. The company is always good and the birds totally enchanting, - big mix of shore birds – Eastern Curlews, Whimbrels, Bar-tailed Godwits, to name but a few, - shot of the day was - six Red-necked Stints mucking about next to the sleeping Godwits. I have not put this one on the site yet!

First comment

Last Friday was a visit to the north shore Port Macquarie with Hastings Birdwatchers, always a good day with plenty to look at. For me - what we see and what I am able to photograph are two different realities! But after unsuccessfully chasing some scrub wrens down Lime Burners Creek – I did end up with a great opportunity to photograph a Willie Wagtail nest with her and two babies, just fantastic. The shot is now edited and up on my website

Special thanks to web designer Ryan Kelly
