Special Sightings

A wonderful variety of birds are frequenting the property, many taking advantage of the prolific insect life that is evident in our ‘growing season’.
One of our spectacular sightings this week included several Gould’s Bronze-Cuckoos calling and flying about back and forth as the morning sun shone on their wings which they displayed to best advantage when alighting on a branch. They were high in the trees but our view was excellent and unforgettable.
We have had several sightings of a pair of Great-billed Herons that have been calling for about a week. Late yesterday afternoon we could hear the birds calling from behind the islands and then they appeared on the grassed bund wall, one running after the other which then flew a short distance into a tree. We watched from the hide enjoying the opportunity to observe the birds so clearly without disturbing them.
