Back to the Manilla River Walk. This is very simple to describe. Just go along the river from one bridge to the other. I started at the road bridge and walked to the old rail bridge near the show grounds. First thing I spotted near the bridge was pack of magpies harrassing a Brown Goshawk. Unfortunately he was too far away and only got a badly focused photo.
I had been very inspired by an American kid who had got a photo of a bat in flight, so I was very happy to get this shot and a few others. Not as focussed as I would like but it is very difficult to get a photo of them in flight.
I was very surprised to see a pair of Brown Quail along the track.
The next morning a mob of Yellow-rumped Thornbills interrupted my breakfast.
These beautiful birds are always a delight to photograph.
I have no idea what this White-winged Chough has got in its mouth but it is very interesting.
I thought these were Sulphur-crested Cockatoo until I had a good look.
I like the chiaroscuro of this shot. ha ha It’s art!
