Merimbula 2.

A few more pics from Merimbula, mainly from the board walk.

 This Eastern Whip Bird seemed to be oblivious to the people that were around, just wanted to have a bath.

 Whimbrel.

 Eastern Curlew.

Couldn't resist this one as I walked around the lake.

Merimbula

Spent a few days up at Merimbula. Here are some shots taken when standing at Long Point, I was looking out to sea for whales, when this Sea Eagle came up from below and cruised around.

Fairy Dell.

Took a drive up to Fairy Dell last Saturday, quite a lot of noise, but difficult to see the birds in the thick growth. Did manage to photo a few.

Golden Whistler. Photo a bit soft forgot to look at the shutter speed.

Eastern Yellow Robin.

Herb Guyatt Reserve.

Haven't been around Guyatt Reserve for a while, so went for a stroll yesterday, well worth it as I saw the first Sacred Kingfisher for the season.

McKinnons Point.

Went for a drive up to McKinnons Point yesterday, to check out if there were any Peregrine Falcons. None to be seen, so I walked down along the creek, not many birds around, back up to the car park for another look along the cliffs. Spotted one way up in the trees, stayed there long enough for a couple of photos from a long way off. These are my first photos of a Peregrine Falcon, hopefully more next time.

Common Raptors

Some more photos of the Raptors down at the Sale Common.

Black Shouldered Kite. Sitting on this stick when I walked past, was still there half an hour later as I came back.

Saw this head from a distance and thought it was a baby Whistling Kite, but it is one of a pair sitting, the other out to the left.

Juvenile White Bellied Sea Eagle.

Wedge tailed Eagle, sitting close by it's nest.

Not a raptor but a Grey Currawong.
