Great shots and very nice to see several like this. If only they managed to get up to Brisbane a bit more often, would love to see them.

Thanks.
We have at least 12 here at the moment and at least 1 is a juvi.
Brissie is in there range so hopefully you will get to see some.


I prefer to be in the bush with the animals than a crowded city.

I was wondering what this is. One of the Shearwater species?

Impressive photos coming through!

Here's one from today. I must be getting better at stalking because this was taken from about 10metres away.

That's impressive getting that close, almost had to use the focus limit switch! Great shot.
