Water birds

The morning silence was disturbed by the squealing gull toddler.  Here are some of the water birds.  No pelicans because horror of horror I left my camera's battery charger at home!   How will I survive when the battery runs out???


  1. Super bird shots. The baby sure is a noisy one. Doesn't that make you mad when you forget the charger.

  2. Read this post yesterday, and left it open most of the day, to try to identify the birds. I shall try again this evening. Am doing Ma-care today. Hee hee hee ...

  3. Was a bit stretched getting all the posts done and meant to try and identify them. Here is what I think they are
    1. Seagull
    2. Egret - don't know what type
    3.Masked Lapwing (Plover)
    4. White faced heron
    5. Cormorant or Shag ... dunno which
    6. Black swans
    7. Dunno

  4. There was a stupid tv show on a few years ago about "Whinging Poms" who had emigrated to Australia - there was a woman who was complaining about the screeching, squawking birds - like cockatoos, that woke her up in the morning. She said in England they had sweetly chirping dainty little birds. I'd never thought of it that way before!

  5. Well I reckon even dainty bird babies do a lot of squawking ... but you've gotta admit that we do have rather a lot of large squawking birds.

  6. Great post, Joan. All birds are beautiful and the capture on top is fantastic.

The filmy veil of greenness

We crossed the border into Victoria cruising down a lovely timbered road before breaking into the rich dairy country of Gippsland. It is wonderful to see the land green after more than 10 years of very dry weather. But most of the state of Victoria is still drought declared. Musing: The Pasture by Robert Frost "I'm going out to clean the pasture spring; I'll only stop to rake the leaves away (And wait to watch the water clear, I may): I sha'n't be gone long. You come too. I'm going out to fetch the little calf That's standing by the mother. It's so young, It totters when she licks it with her tongue. I sha'n't be gone long. You come too."

The end

I retire from the workforce this week and to celebrate have decided to retire my current blogs and start afresh with a single consolidated blog -  My Bright Field  - to record the delights of my new life adventure. If you are interested follow me over there.  I will still be Sweet Wayfaring and collecting Royal Hotels.  The delights I discover along the way will appear together with my gardens and towns where I live.

Royal Hotel - Grong Grong

But wait, no trip is complete until a Royal or two has been added to the collection.  This one is at Grong Grong.
