Walsh Point


Back at Walsh Point this afternoon, as the stiff breeze from the west continues. Theoretically this offers great opportunities for flight shots as the birds are almost eye level as you walk along the bank,and  when picturesquely flying into the light, they are also flying into the wind, and are conveniently held up. After practising on gulls, terns and cormorants for a while I was rewarded by this Brahminy Kite, a fairly rare visitor this far south. He flew up and down the river for twenty minutes, cruising past the jetties and loading docks.
