  1. Fancy Pants

    Fancy Pants

    It looks like this Grey Teal is showing off some rather pretty knickers, doesn't it. I'm rather fond of this picture for some reason.
  2. Wattling

    Wattling

    I picked this image as it really allows us to see the wattle, after which the Red Wattlebird is named of course. The first time I'd seen any species of honeyeater on the ground I think.
  3. Closer

    Closer

    I think this was the closest I ever got to a Pink-eared Duck. Rather attractive, aren't they. Even showing off that pink ear too LOL Yippee... the out of stock pills are coming back in tomorrow, so I should be back to normal in a few days!! Whatever "normal" is of course! LOL
  4. In the green

    In the green

    It never ceases to amaze me how many different 'greens' there are LOL. This is the Australasian Grebe, which is a little smaller than our Little Grebe.
  5. Like ships passing in the night

    Like ships passing in the night

    One of many pictures I've taken when a species shows itself in the image that I didn't know was there!! I was taking the Mute Swan in flight but on preparing the image for posting here I spotted the Grey Heron in the background - at least I presume it's a heron, I can't see much detail...
  6. The Vandals have arrived!

    The Vandals have arrived!

    The Starlings emptied their nests during the week, first I saw of young ones was on Monday! They all descend on my garden, where the adults bring them as it's obviously easy to feed them here after I've put some feed out in the morning. Now it seems that they are all feeding independently...
  7. Visitor

    Visitor

    Laughing Kookaburras aren't native to Western Australia, a fact I wasn't aware of before my trip. As well as WA, they were introduced to Tasmania and New Zealand! Think this was the only one that I saw in WA, though he certainly isn't shy and retiring, is he LOL.
  8. Destroying or excavating?

    Destroying or excavating?

    I thought the Galahs were just doing their thing (destroying the top of the dead tree). Now I guess they're actually excavating a nest hole (though quite prepared to be corrected on that). This was another dead tree in the middle of the lake.
  9. Family time

    Family time

    Then we came to a little stilt family. It was nice to see them altogether like that. So I guess we have, one Pied Stilt, one Australian Stilt and one White-headed Stilt, LOL, not bad!!!
  10. Dead wood

    Dead wood

    A Straw-necked Ibis was sitting on top of one of the dead trees in the middle of the lake. That was nice, as I didn't get to see too many of these as they're not nearly so common as the others (at least not in the parts I visited).
  11. Sepia

    Sepia

    There were a few Mute Swan about that afternoon; didn't see any pairs though, so presumably the females were on nests. I rather like the colours in this image.
  12. The Chase is On

    The Chase is On

    Looks like the male Tufted Ducks are all chasing after the same female!! Taken on a recent visit to Kinnordy at the end of April. Saturday Fun
  13. Busy place

    Busy place

    Making his way towards the Pink-eared Duck was a Red-kneed Dotterel, quietly passing a foraging Grey Teal. There was plenty going on that morning! I was pleased to see the dotterel though, as I don't think I'd seen one for ages!
  14. A sleepy pair

    A sleepy pair

    Moving on a yard or two was a Grey Teal dozing away with a Pink-eared Duck, who wasn't displaying a pink ear!
  15. Confusion

    Confusion

    I get so confused between Australian and Australasian species LOL. This is an Australasian Swamphen, not as I have shown on the picture "Australian". I couldn't work out why I couldn't find many pictures in my Gallery LOL. A species that really doesn't seem to mind people wandering about round...
  16. Where is he?

    Where is he?

    It looks like this Australian Ibis is watching for her mate LOL Not quite so colourful as Peter's ibis today, from the opposite side of the world!
  17. An early first

    An early first

    How pretty Nankeen Night Heron's are. My very first sighting of one and, in fact, my first sighting of any night heron. So, just a few birds in, and I've already got a Lifer for the day! I got a few pictures of him, but not many of them showed the plumes on his back which they produce when in...
  18. A Happy Couple

    A Happy Couple

    Towards the end of April, saw us back at Kinnordy. Rather dull light that day, but I thought it made a rather nice image with these Mallards.
  19. Missed

    Missed

    While we were watching the pretty Wheatears on the dry stone dyke behind the car, suddenly a Eurasian Sparrowhawk swooped over the bonnet and headed for the dyke. Remember I mentioned a big black hole a couple of weeks ago, well he landed right there, and spread his wings for a moment cowling...
  20. Pole Corellas

    Pole Corellas

    These two Little Corellas were on a dead stump out in the middle of the lake. They seemed rather intent on either chewing at the wood or having found some food, were stuffing themselves. Rather pretty birds are corellas I think.
  21. Banded

    Banded

    Nearby foraging in the mud was a rather smart looking Buff-banded Rail. I'd been so fortunate to have seen quite a few of these, far less shy than rails in the UK LOL
  22. Reflective

    Reflective

    Another rather confused species for the Pied Stilt is also known as Australian Stilt and White-headed Stilt, LOL We'd had a long day driving up from Albany, eventually reaching Perth. But had difficulty opening the door to the house we'd rented. I eventually got it, when we'd relaxed and gone...
  23. Rather Fitting I Guess

    Rather Fitting I Guess

    That the very last picture I show you from Little Grove, should be a Western Rosella, one of the endemic Western Australian species. I was really quite taken by the beautiful colours in his wing and tail feathers.
  24. Bird on a wire

    Bird on a wire

    With the tide well out, there weren't many birds close enough for photography, so we started making our way back home. Another young Magpie was waiting to show us the way.
  25. Just landed

    Just landed

    We had a couple of Yellowhammers around that afternoon, this one landed just as I was looking for something else, right in line with my camera LOL
