2nd bird for 2019

After hearing a Little Grassbird on many occasions and very rarely seeing one, I had almost given up on taking video of this species. However, a member of our local birding group suggested a trip to Dangars lagoon where the water had receded and Little Grassbirds were leaving the shelter of the reeds to feed […]

First New Bird for 2019

Last week we had to travel to Goondiwindi for the weekend. On the way we stopped at a cricketing friend’s property in Delungra. He had told me he had Ground Cuckoo-Shrike there. On arrival he showed us the tree that had a nest with two young. On the other side of the same tree were […]

2018 trips

Many trips were undertaken in 2018 and quite a few new birds were added to the DVDs. It was a busy year with a few medical operations interspersed. I must admit I was a bit slack with blog entries but hope to make up for it now. The highlight of the year was a trip […]

Trip to Bullarah

Where is Bullarah you may well ask. Well it’s about 70km west of Moree, NSW. While looking at the eBird site I noticed a submission from Pat at Bullarah. His website had a few species that I still hadn’t videod and after asking about the possibility for a short visit, I headed off for Bullarah. […]

Trip to Canberra

In November we travelled to Canberra for the National Veterans Cricket Championship. On the way we stopped off at Buderoo in an effort to video at least one of Beautiful Firetail, Eastern Ground Parrot and Eastern Bristlebird. No Luck. Around Canberra I did manage to video Weebills building a nest as well as improved video […]

Trip to Cape York

In mid September we headed for Townsville to commence a drive to the tip of Cape York. With approximately 80 species of interest up that way we were hopeful of photographing and videoing a few as well as accomplishing the task of reaching the tip. We found the task was not that easy but I […]

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 […]
