Thanks Nora, and for the confirmation of that moth too.

Yeah... I was particularly fond of the King Parrot and the tree frog too.

On the ground below the verandah, while we were having lunch, was an Australian Magpie. When I went back to my cabin a tiny white butterfly with purplish wings was sitting on my step. It's not been fully identified for me yet, but probably a Lycaenid

Then we set off up the Austinville Valley, which was really quite beautiful. Then the first of my Lifers for the day with a gorgeous Eastern Yellow Robin (much higher up the tree than it appears in this picture). The last picture shows a termite mound, which were still fascinating to me.

What a wonderful trip you are having Delia. Well done juggling 3 cameras! There are some very gorgeous birds that you have shared with us. Thank you very much. I have just read your whole thread, instead of finishing off sorting my last ZA trip!! Such enjoyable procrastination!

Thanks Lisa... yeah... Kookaburra beaks are rather impressive! You don't really want to mess with them LOL.

Thanks, too, Andy - I'm honoured LOL. I am home now (been back just over a month). But I've still got over a month of write-up to do. Some lovely people out there and beautiful birds too!

Oh and I wasn't that rich Andy.... just 2 cameras. I only tried juggling them for a day and a half, then found it too complicated LOL. The Nikon was doing me fine!!

On the way back down the valley I managed to get this rather large and attractive Wompoo Fruit Dove. (I'm now beginning to understand how difficult rainforest birding can be LOL

Lower down, beside a homestead farm Judy spotted a White-faced Heron on power lines, then suddenly managed a quick grab through the windscreen of an Australian Brushturkey before it disappeared into the bush.

Also seen/heard on that drive were Lewin's Honeyeater, Currawong, Eastern Whipbird (heard - again!), Sulphur-crested Cockatoo (noisily flying round the treetops) Galah, Torresian Crow, Cattle Egret; and Hans saw a Black-faced Cuckooshrike.

We were heading for Hinterland Park at Mudgeeraba, I discovered. Hopefully to see Glossy Black Cockatoos. However, a walk along the trail and we couldn't even hear one sadly.

So made for the picnic area for a cuppie and some of Judy's delicious cake while we planned our next move. I'd just lifted the cake and it was heading to my mouth when a Kookaburra flew over my shoulder, grabbed it and was gone!!! I never even knew it was there!!!

I was rewarded though, a few minutes later when we spotted a Spangled Drongo high in a tree. A couple of Australian Ibis were pecking around the area too.

The last to be pecking around near the picnic area was a Pied Butcherbird.

Anyway, decision now made; heading for Carrara and Emerald Lakes. A few lakes here and a golf course too.

We did two, the first of which I'll call the Lily Pond. Rather an attractive one and the first bird to be seen was a Magpie-Goose on an island. There was another on top of a tree as well. A stunning Glossy Ibis was walking beside the reeds on the opposite bank. A Magpie-Lark almost at our feet in the mud, then a Little Black Cormorant on a post.

Didn't you get the Wompoo photo,as I had improved it through Photoshop? A lot more colour than the one you have posted,which doesn't do the bird justice.

Hi Hans, yes I did my friend and you did a super job on it.... and it's waiting in the wings to be used on the day I took that picture (the 17th), when we went back up the Austinville Valley.

Sorry, I should have explained that to you LOL

A few more species seen at the Lily Pond, though I'll start with an overall view of it.

An Australasian Grebe swam through some of the flowering lilies, made an attractive image I thought. The a Comb-crested Jacana trotted across them with those huge feet.

Eurasian Coot and Pacific Black Duck complete the set of my images, but also seen or heard there were an Australian Magpie, Australasian Swamphen and Noisy Miner.

Golf Course Lake

We then crossed to the other side of the road and walked along a path beside another lake with a golf course on the other side.

A lot of birds around here too.

Most on the other side of course LOL, so we'll start with a Dusky Moorhen, then a Great Egret with a couple of Wandering Whistling Ducks at his feet. Australasian Darter, Swamphen and Ibis all more-or-less in the same place.

It's funny lighting, but pretty sure the ducks in the egret pic are Wandering Whistling Ducks. Great stuff Delia, looking forward to more

Grrr.... thanks Larry... I kept looking and looking at them to see if they were. There were Hardhead around, and I had a picture of the wanderers with the bums up in the water; thought these were wanderers, then went with Hardhead.

Just confused myself, didn't I. Thanks lad. I'll make the changes.

An Australian Swamphen walked off towards the fairway, while a dozy Australian Pelican never moved.

At the entrance to the lake there was a beautiful female Australian Figbird sitting up in a tree.

Then it was a case of waiting for the main event... and eventually they started coming... Fruit Bats came from further up the Golf Course Lake than we had walked, and flew across the road.

We stood and watched them coming for about half an hour until there was too little light for photos.

Also seen on and around the lake were Eurasian Coot, Pacific Black Duck, Australian Grebe, Hardhead and Grey Teal,

On the way back to the camp site, we stopped and had a very nice dinner at a Mexican Restaurant.

A great end to the day.

Whale Watching

14 October 2019

A rather busy day ahead! We set off down to the Gold Coast Harbour to get on a boat for a whale watching trip. Gosh that day will live long in my mind, even though I'd seen Humpbacks a week or so before with Ken, this experience was quite different.

We had a welcome cup of coffee while waiting for the boat to come in. Right outside the window were a pair of Pied Oystercatchers; they actually had a young one below them.

In the distance was a long sand bar that was covered in birds: Australian Pied Cormorant, Little Pied Cormorant, Little Black Cormorant, Silver Gull. Further along was an Australian Pelican, with a couple of Great Crested Terns.

I had such a job deciding which of many images to show you of this lot LOL

The last picture is, of course, the tail of a diving Humpback Whale. More of which in the following posts. It, again, is going to prove difficult to decide what to leave out!!

Sorry Delia didn't mean to re post my comment (still in awe of the Darter photo) but we had a black out with huge thunderstorm, 43 degrees with 52mph winds and trying to keep the water up to all the wildlife and the PC got stuck! So edited it :)
Love all of this keep, reading from the beginning, make a lovely travel book?
Thanks for sharing!
