Brisbane & Melbourne area

Hi Guys
Just naming the photos I took on recent holiday and having trouble with the photos attached, spread over 5 posts, particularly the waders that have always been a weakness for me !! Can you let me know what you think please ? The locations are in the file names.
Ps how do you upload video clips ? I have some great close up video of an Alberts lyrebird at O'Reillys.

Thanks
Tony

Agree with almost all of Adam's work, except
1) is a Brown Gerygone
and I suspect 18) might be a young Spotted Harrier, but wouldn't put any money on it from that shot

Thanks Guys.
I missed a couple of others that I've attached to this post.
If you're interested, all photos (including the decent ones !) are in the "Australia - birds" album here => https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/sets/ If you do look, please let me know if I got any of the others wrong !!

cheers
Tony

I love your photos, thanks for sharing! Do you know where about on the Great Ocean Road you found your rufous bristlebird?
Your Iceland photos make me want to go there even more :)

Great - thanks guys. So pleased that was the bristlebird as I was hoping to catch one in one of the car parks but it didn't seem close enough to the image in the book to be sure. I've gone back and checked the chronology of all my photos and it was taken in the car park at Point Addis National Park at the start of the GOR.
PS Platy, Iceland was amazing in every respect !
