Brown Falcon

This pole in the middle of the wetlands has proven to be a regular resting place for birds of prey. This time it's a brown falcon.

Swamp Harrier at Edithvale

Very hard to get a decent shot of this swamp harrier as it is always cruising up and down the wetlands looking for a tasty morsel. I managed to sight this one resting on a favourite pole adjacent to the waterway. It was however, a very long way away.
