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 […]


      Female Spotted Quail-Thrush                                Male Spotted Quail-Thrush I knew this bird was in the Armidale area because a member of the local birdwatching group had taken a photo of it and asked me to identify it. That was about four years ago. Every time I was in the same area I kept an eye out […]

Trip to Tasmania

Cape Barren Goose Thought I had better speed up the process of videoing 400 species so we went to Tasmania for two weeks.

Another new bird added to the list

Baillon’s Crake In February I visited the Emerald Lakes Wetlands at the Gold Coast and was lucky enough to video Baillon’s Crake. Thanks must be given to a new member of our local birdwatching group who put me onto the site. What a lovely spot in the middle of all the hustle and bustle. That’s […]

One new bird and video from a friend

One new bird for December

Red-browed Treecreeper This month has been busy with Christmas preparations but last week Gail and I travelled to Styx River, about 50 Km from Armidale, to have a picnic lunch with a colleague from the local birdwatching group. I was able to video the Red-browed Treecreeper, a new bird for me. That’s 366!! Christmas wishes […]

Trip to Stockton, Newcastle

Red-necked Avocet Earlier in the year I visited Diamantina National Park and was lucky enough to video Red-necked Avocet. While there I was told that if I wanted to video Avocet I needed to go to Stockton. Well, when the rain stopped and the tides were correct I set out in anticipation. I was not […]

Trip to Lord Howe Island

White Tern In late October we travelled to Lord Howe Island for a week. What a beautiful place. The local museum now stocks my DVDs.
