Ash Island Bird Photography , 23rd February, 2009.

I went to Ash Island this morning. Again. The sun was out which was a major change. First up I spotted a Black-shouldered Kite sitting in a tree so I snaps off a few photos. You can see them and read about them about two posts back. A pair of whistling kites flew past off in the distance and a couple of Pacific Black Ducks flew past. Here he is.

Along the back way I spotted a few White-fronted Chats and some grass birds. When I got to Wagtail Way, the pair of Black-fronted Dotterels were still there. They just love hanging out on the road for some strange reason. The pipits are the same, they are always on the road.

There was a royal spoonbill in the pond and he came quite close.

Here is another shot of Platalea regia.

Down the road there was a baby Royal Spoonbill. As I headed home i spotted some reed-warblers in the wild fennel bushes as per usual and in the same area as the Black-shouldered Kite there was an Australian hobby sitting in a tree. See the last post for photos and story.
