Seagulls over the rocks

Mon 26th December 2011

There were lots of seagulls flying over the rocks at Hastings Point. Matt had a field day with his camera!

The wind was so strong the birds didn’t need to flap their wings, they were just hanging in the sky looking for their next meal.

Birds of Prey show

Fri 23rd December 2011

Today we took a trip to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Gold Coast. We attended a free flight bird show and it was certainly an eye opener!

Matt says...

The free flight bird show was very impressive. The birds flew right over our heads quite a few times. Perfect opportunity for photographs!

This Eagle was magnificent when in flight. It’s wing span was huge, I had to duck several times when it flew over our heads!

 

Hiding in the bushes

Tue 20th September 2011

This gorgeous-looking bird was hiding in the trees but you can just about see him in this shot. We think some of the more bolshy tourists scared him away!

Matt says...

I’m not sure what breed the bird is in the picture but it was very shy. It had a stunning plumage of bright orange and black, a bit like the Wolves strip. I’ll name the bird Steve Bull :)

Proud Peacock

Tue 20th September 2011

There were lots of Peacocks wandering around the park, occasionally approaching people who had bits of food.

Matt says...

The Peacocks have an amazing plumage, we the males do at least. I’d love to get a photo of the tail fanned out but none of the males seemed that interested. Must be the wrong time of year.

Claire says...

I didn’t know Peacocks like ice cream so much, apparently they like popcorn too!

 

Visiting the nursery

Tue 20th September 2011

We paid a visit to the nursery to see lots of chicks and baby ducklings in the incubators. They didn’t mind being held either, they must be very used to it.

I’m not sure this photo does much for Matt’s street-cred, but hey, it shows his softer side?!?
