Bird Photography at Ash Island, Newcastle. 2nd March, 2009.

This morning I went to Ash Island. It was an overcast day, and around 20 to 24 degrees Celsius. There was not much around. A very slack day today. I tried out the Sigma flash but I think it does not throw far enough. I will be making a better beamer as soon as I can find out who sells fresnal magnifying lenses. Here is a habitat shot of a Black-fronted Dotterel(Charadrius melanops). Its a very moody shot. I quite like the feel of it.

I saw a white-bellied sea-eagle near the river, but he did not come close enough. On the way home I went down the road to the river on the northern side and saw a Crested Pigeon. I had not taken a photo of one of these before so I thought it may as well not be a totally wasted day. The shots of the Crested Pigeon(Ocyphaps lophotes) came out quite well i thought. They are a nice looking bird.

And here is another.
