Tighes Hill

005_1 Having spent all day Saturday on the Pelagic trip – and consequently Saturday evening lying on the sofa moaning softly – I vowed to spend Sunday at the computer catching up on marking. I was rewarded by a Spangled Drongo coming to sit just 2-3 metres from me, perched on a tree-fern frond calling for some minutes. Luckily I had the camera beside me, unluckily I had to shoot through glass and flyscreen.

  1. So the moaning was from sea sickness? If so you'll be happy to know that Grant was doing the same down in Woollongong. :)

  3. Pelagics are the birders equivalent of an all night bender! ;)Hope you at least got some nice photos as a consolation for your discomfort.

  4. I actually didn't do too badly, the drugs worked. More tired, windswept and sunburned, and battered and bruised from steadying myself against the rail.

    Four rarities - three with photos. The Sunday trip got an Australian first though. But that's what gets you out there again next time :-)
