Trip to the SW of WA – Oct, Nov.

We flew to Perth on October 21 for two weeks of birding in the SW of WA and a week of veterans cricket in Perth in November. I had a list of about 20 species that I thought would be possible to video and photograph. What a wonderful part of Australia! We saw whales breaching, […]

Trip to Townsville, Cairns and Kingfisher Park

In September we flew to Townsville to visit my daughter and later travelled to Cairns and Kingfisher Park at Julatten. We were extremely lucky with the weather at Kingfisher Park. It rained on the night we arrived and the morning we left. Nothing in between. Seven new birds were videod and improved video of about […]

Trip to Melbourne and East Coast

Wood Sandpiper We had another trip to Melbourne in April. We travelled down the centre of NSW to Albury and through to Melbourne. The return trip was via the east coast of Victoria and the south coast of NSW. Due to the dry conditions there were not a lot of birds to be seen. At […]

Short trip to Melbourne in January

Grey Currawong We had a short, 3 day, trip to Melbourne in January. One day was too hot for anything to be out and about so we watched cricket on TV with the air-conditioner on. Late on the second day we drove to Yarra Bend and Heidelberg. I was lucky enough to spot a Grey […]

Back to Tasmania in November

Black-headed Honeyeater In November I was selected for NSW to play over 60s cricket in Hobart, so an extra week in Tasmania seemed like a sensible idea. After 3 days on Bruny Island and trips in the Huon Valley and to Lake Pedder, I was able to add Black-headed Honeyeater and Brush Bronzewing to the […]

Swift Parrot and Black Falcon in October

Swift Parrot On returning to Armidale at the end of September, there was news that Swift Parrots had been in the area in recent days. A quick trip to Booralong Creek was made and I was lucky enough to find them with my new binoculars. Some nice video was taken in addition to video of […]

Trip to Townsville and Alstonville in September

White-browed Robin On September 12 my mum turned 90 so a party was in order in Alstonville. A few days later we flew to my daughter’s place in Townsville. Improved video of Yellow Honeyeaters and a number of other species was obtained but no Black-throated Finch was found. At Paluma I was able to take […]

Trip to Alice Springs in late June, early July

Chiming Wedgebill In late June my wife and I undertook a 7000km trip to Alice Springs. Our first major stop was Bowra Sanctuary near Cunnamulla. Some interesting footage, especially of White-plumed Honeyeater, was taken but no new species were found. Through Central Queensland conditions were poor for birding – hardly sited a Willie Wagtail for […]

Eastern Blue Bonnet added

Blue Bonnets In Late April we went to Baradine for the Autumn Campout of Birdlife Northern NSW. Some Blue Bonnets were seen but only poor video was obtained as the weather was wet and dull. Good video was taken of Collared Sparrowhawk when a local farmer allowed us on his property. To add to my […]

New series of DVDs

I am very pleased to announce that the new series of DVDs is now available. There are 8 DVDs in the series. Each DVD is over 50 minutes and there are 406 species of birds in total. I try to have at least a minute of quality video of each bird. I am very proud […]

Trip to Adelaide and Kangaroo Island

  Regent Honeyeater In October we spent a week around Adelaide and a week on Kangaroo Island. New species added were; Fairy Penguin, Long-billed Corella, Whiskered Tern, Little Raven, Purple-crowned Lorikeet, Purple-gaped Honeyeater and the Australian Shelduck. The highlight of the month though was finding and videoing the Regent Honeyeater. So the total is 406 […]

Edging closer to 400

Spectacled Monarch This month Gail and I travelled to Alstonville and Brisbane. While at Alstonville I made a trip to the Border Ranges NP to look for Eastern Bristlebirds but instead I found Wompoo Fruit-Doves high in a tree. Hope the video taken is of a suitable standard. While in Brisbane I returned to an […]

Bowra Trip

Major Mitchell’s Cockatoo In August we undertook a trip to Bowra Sanctuary, Hungerford, Bourke, Narrabri and Tamworth. Conditions were perfect at Bowra and the birdwatching fantastic. By the time we reached Hungerford, Currawinya NP was closed due to flooding and conditions at Narrabri were also wet. We managed to take lots of photos and video. […]

Some good news and some not so good

Scarlet-chested Parrot In June we visited the Marsupial Park in Tamworth. In the aviary we spotted a pair of Scarlet-chested Parrots. What a colourful little parrot! Some nice video was taken of this fairly rare species. Last week we made a special trip to Barraba in search of the Turquoise Parrot. We stayed in the […]

Sometimes you get lucky

Albert’s Lyrebird During May we visited Tamborine just south of Brisbane with the goal of videoing Alber’ts Lyrebird. We had been told that walking the Witches Creek Falls circuit at dawn during May and June was probably our best chance. Well the calls could be heard but no Lyrebird was spotted. Anyway, while chatting over […]
