This is the continuation of a series about our recent roadtrip.
His and hers luggage for the week of biking and birding
7th July 2015: A rainy start in Lakes Entrance meant no sightseeing in the morning, so no bike ride along Cunningham Arm.
An attractive looking wood fire smoking the back yard at Manna Park
A beautiful drive through to Eden for delicious oysters for lunch, then afternoon tea with friends in Merimbula then on to Manna Park just past Tura Beach for more mountain bike riding.
Mountain biking at Manna Park
I was happy to bird watch where we were, there weren’t any notable bird watching areas in the vicinity that came up on a Google search!
Grevillea growing around the park, makes for good birding!
My friend photographer [2_anne___ on Instagram] has inspired me to look at the ground; its amazing what you see!
I wandered around and got shots of a Little Wattlebird feeding on nectar,
A couple of blurry shots that’ll make you wonder if you need your eyes tested; low light is hard to work with
Early dinner for this agile birdie, lots of fun to watch and photograph…even with no light to work with!
and a lifer in a Wonga Pigeon!
Could have missed this one in the gloom, but out of instinct I stopped the car and got a lifer!
Another Wonga pigeon, from the other side…nothing flash and still a once in a lifetime for me, so far
I drove elsewhere to get some other pictures, but the light and time of day were not on my side.
Not a bad alternative, but the light was too low for many photos
Last light of the day, not super productive but got me a lifer!
