Shoal Bay

After our gardening of the last few days we had a load of clippings to take to the re-cycling centre. I took the camera along in case there were raptors, as is often the case at disposal centres. I wasn't disappointed with a large number of black, square-tailed and whistling kite circling above.

I was suprised, however, to see a flock of around fifty plus pied heron fly in.

Bird list:

Whistling Kite Haliastur sphenurus (pictured above)
Black Kite Milvus migrans
Square-tailed Kite Lophoictinia isura
Pied Heron Ardea picata
Rainbow Bee-eater Merops ornatus
Magpie Lark Grallina cyanoleuca
