Murrindindi Day 2

Well it rained all night, its cool and still raining. Get some inside jobs done. Had a break in the weather so grabbed Dons army coat and went for a walk, then saw the very black clouds coming so walked a wee bit faster back. Did a big cook up in the Thermal pot. Very cold and miserable.

 Fairy Wren Eastern Yellow Robin  Don’t know this one  Crimson Rosella, I stalked it for ages to get close enough. Its eating thistle flowers.  The river, you can see trees that have fallen.  Very fast flowing and very cold.  Bush wren or fantail, not sure.  Female fairy wrenEastern Yellow Robin

Spent a week here with my son and his wife, good time in his pool when it was hot, thanks to you both. Garry and friend went for a ride.

Day 11

Tuesday 11th February 

The last of the visitors left today and another hot day so we have just relaxed, after our late night shooting last night. Here are a few photo’s that we have taken over the last few days when we went driving out the back and up into the hills. The bird life is really incredible at my son’s place so that keeps us photographers happy. 🙂

Here is a kingfisher diving in and out of the swimming pool.

We didn’t go in until he went away.IMG_6825  Think this is a tree creeper.IMG_6838  We think this is a Scarlet Honey Eater, they are so funny, getting around upside down to all the nectar.IMG_6898  Young King Parrot.IMG_6947 Hotel at Scone.IMG_6950  Old house coming home from Scone.IMG_6957  Echidna up in the bush.IMG_6977
