SANDSTONE & VINE FOREST JULY 2011 Part II


Last year at this time I saw large flocks of Triller sp. Working in pairs to catch grasshoppers. One bird to scare them the other to catch them in the air. This year a few Friarbird sp. getting drunk on the Eucalyptus miniata (Darwin Woolybut) flower nectar which also did not flower for very long last year. The only other regular customer is the ever present Pardalote sp. which goes about its business never singing but with its constant repeating of a single note. With the cool weather and lack of reason to stop and investigate I have managed to walk further on day walks. Sometimes I have managed 25 Km in a day and a half even with regular waypoint checks or climbing a hill to get a better idea of the direction to the next ridge saddle.

Wow.

If I search your blogs long enough, will I find information about the camera equipment you use? It seems like it must be pretty high quality, but it also seems like you take it everywhere, and high quaility often means large and heavy. How do you do it?

Sensational site. To be able to put names to so many of the top end sights is Great. Look froward to your next posting.
