Driving along a road that followed the Hunter River, I became aware of a movement beside me and looked around to see a Swamp Harrier overtaking me at car window height. I watched amazed for a moment before speeding up to get in front of him while grabbing the camera from the passenger seat. (If you ever read of my demise in an inexplicable traffic accident, you can ask "What was the bird?")
It was in vain, by the time I was in position to take a photograph it had swept up and away, not to return.
