Point Nepean in Winter

The sunny days continue and Point Nepean on the Mornington Peninsula is a great to visit for both the scenery and the wildlife. Australian Gannets can be seen on most days, flying past the point as they travel from bay to ocean. There are many locations to grab a fly by shot, but I recommend going in the morning when the sun is behind you.

Singing Honeyeaters are prevalent at Eagles nest and White Browed Scrubwrens are often seen darting in and out of the thick vegetation. I managed to see a wallaby for the first time at the point, a surprise to both of us. In Port Phillip Bay, great views of ships entering and exiting via the rip can be seen, and many recreational boats use the area. This catamaran can be seen with the South Channel Fort in the background. Views across the rip to Point Lonsdale are amazing.

The last two photos are an Eastern Yellow Robin and a Grey Shrike Thrush.
