Eynesbury Gems— Take #2

You can guess that it is raining here today. ‘Cause I’m stuck inside and I’ve cleaned the cameras and formatted the memory cards, (twice) and charged the batteries.  And its still raining.  Beaut really as it will freshen up a very tired bush.

But on the other hand the only thing left on the todo list is to finish off the Eynesbury Series.  So here is episode #2.

 

Not much to add from the previous ramble so here we go with eight more shots from the day.

Enjoy

Varied Sittella, showing off its usual pattern of going down the tree in hunt for food

 

Brown Thornbill. Not often I get a shot of it out in the open. Usually only just hear them or see a movement in the bushes

 

Speckled Warbler, and this is as good as it got. There seems to be four or more pairs at work in various parts of the Grey Box. Hearing them is one thing, getting a view another, but photographing them an whole new ball game. Still it keeps us going out

 

Striated Pardalote

 

Pretty excited with this find as its the first Sacred Kingfisher that I’ve seen in Eynesbury. Given the number of “Pee Pee Pee” calls I’d be certain of a number of them being in the forest.

 

A very young Pacific Black Duck. I’ve included it as its a rather special little duck. Somehow it has been seperated from its family. We’ve seen it from a very small duckling and each time have been a little surprised that it has managed to survive on its own. There certainly are other families of young ducks out there, but none that are at the same age as this loner. Good luck little duck.

 

And of course it wouldn’t be a trip without a visit to Jacky Winter. Shows how far I am behind in the Blogging business. They have since fledged the two young they were nursing. So there is two new Jackys in the forest. Will do a blog on their exploits in the not to distant future.

  1. Some beaut images there, David! Well done with the Brown Thornbill – never an easy one to capture.
    The rain has been so welcome and wonderful. 3 mm in the gauge at dawn and a further 34 mm since.

    1. Hello David. I think I was a bit surprised by the Brown Thornbill, given that it was still amongst some pretty thick scrub.
      Our tank runneth over too. I really hate flushing some of the best water in the world down the toilet.
      Should get a good stand of water for the Snipe at Glen Orden, I will go looksee next week. Must phone Greg too, I haven’t forgotten just difficult time of year
