Great Egret

Another beautiful morning with light that was a little unusual on the estuary. The Egrets were busy watching each other until the sun came up and then started to feed more actively. This one was behaving more like a Little Egret with the dancing and chasing they usually get up to. This lasted a few minutes and then it settled down to its "watch and strike". It is beautiful to watch them feed.

Eastern Osprey

I should have been heading home, but I stopped in to see what the shorebirds were up to. Not much as it turned out. But, while I was walking to the car, it started to rain and I heard the Osprey calling. Turned around to see her flying out to the estuary and she was doing her "thing" - sweeping down to the water and then, boom! She had one. Watched her fly around and managed to grab a few frames of her flying past the trees to the "feeding" tree. Awesome to watch her.

Fairy Tern

The Fairy Terns have a very tenuous hold on their space here. They aren't always as successful in breeding each year for a variety of reasons. This adult and the small colony, were breeding on a couple of vacant blocks with housing all around them. They managed to fledge more than a handful of young, which is excellent. It looks like there will be houses on the blocks next year. We'll see.

Eastern Osprey

Early morning walk along a quiet part of the estuary and the Osprey had been "fishing" already. The Ravens were busy giving it a "hurry up" but she wouldn't give in. It was a huge Whiting and she defended it against 3 Ravens. Once they settled down and left her alone, the fish was eaten quite quickly. Amazing to watch her defend herself and her catch.

Black-shouldered Kite

Had the privilege of watching a pair of Black-shouldered Kites during their breeding season. Watch the juvenile fledge and begin to learn how to survive with its mother. This is the juvenile coming into a "feeding tree" after taking the mouse from the mother in mid-air. Totally fascinating to watch.

Little Egret

A beautiful evening watching a few shorebirds and the Little Egret came in to feed watched it for a long time while it moved back and forth along the shoreline. Caught one of the many strikes it made on the bait fish that it was eating. It was a beautiful evening.

Sunrise over the Stirling Range

Was a first trip as a family to the Stirling Range National Park. Plenty to do and see. This particular morning saw the sky clear to start with and then clouds began to build up. Interesting to hear the wind blowing over the top of Bluff Knoll (behind me in the image) - sounds like engines were howling. Then, the cloud formed as you see. Was a beautiful morning.

White-faced Heron

One of those images that you see through the viewfinder that you know may be worth looking at later. The light was fairly harsh, backlit, and in the middle of Summer - probably not the best time to be photographing, but it worked. They are a common species, but I am always fascinated with the wing stretch.

Whistling Kite

Taken a while ago but still one of my favourites of the Whistling Kite. They are beautiful to see when they are close. It isn't often a wild and free Kite gets this close to me - it was amazing to see.

Sunrise Over Wetlands

The weather has been a little unusual here of late. Warm then cool then rain then hot. The sunrises have been amazing with some spectacular cloud formations during the days as well - not only at sunrise and sunset. This is overlooking the estuary and a small "pond" that many birds feed in. Was an eerie type of morning until the sun rose - changed everything once it was up.
