Stockton Sandspit, Hunter River

Friday, January 16th, 2009
7pm. This evening I went to the Stockton Sandspit, under the Stockton Bridge on the Hunter River in Newcastle. It started off sunny and all of a sudden the clouds came over and the light just went whooosh. When I first got there there was a Swamp Harrier on the grass and as I went around the lagoon it flew off. I was hoping it would come back but it never did just flew off low over the river. It was a pretty crap session actually and nearly all the photos I took were rubbish. These shots of some female superb fairy-wrens are all I could salvage.
