Where did you pop up from?
We left the wonderful house and gardens of John and Dora, we headed north and inland to visit Mount Compass, a swamp looked after by a local school.

Got out of the car and looked around... a bush at the edge of the car park had a few birds, so I lifted the camera and couldn't quite believe what I was seeing through the view finder... a European Goldfinch! The only one I saw in Australia!
