Early one morning at Island Point in the Murray Estuary. Great Egret out for a morning's flight.

Hand held at 730mm with a 1.4TC.

A couple of weeks ago we were on a holiday in NSW and I happened to see these lyrebirds. I had to be very quick, so didn't have much time for changing the settings of my camera. I apologize for the quality but I thought it would be nice to watch it:

Thanks Gbgb, and also thanks to the Robin, I nearly missed seeing him, I was walking under the branch he was on when he started to squawk at me, then he did the Happy Feet Dance (not really, he had an itch and was scratching it faster than my shutter speed .. hahahaha).

Cheers
Gus

Not a great shot, I think blur due to me not holding camera steady, but first time I have seen one of these birds.
Edit: thanks again to Rawshorty for ID, Juvenile Brown Goshawk

Dave, the Collared Sparrowhawk and Brown Goshawk are very difficult birds to pick apart from each other.
There are lots of ways that people use but i find the most consistant way is in the eye's.

The CS has a stare ( nice round eye )
The BG has a glare ( top brow down )

Your bird is a Juvenile so only has a slight brow but is a BG.

Here is a pic of an adult CS showing the round eye without brow.

Edit....
I should have also noted that with juvi birds the BG has a yellow eye but the CS has a brown eye.

Thanks mate. Pretty sure I saw it again today but had 16-35 lens taking some storm damage pics of my local hunting ground so no pics.

I checked on 2 pairs of Tawny Frogmouths this afternoon after whopping storms in Sydney.
Both pairs still in their usual trees.
Got a great pose from this one:
