Wonderful waves

Mon 26th December 2011

Boxing Day and time for a little trip to Hastings point – and we weren’t quite prepared for the view that awaited us!

Matt says...

There were some huge waves on Boxing day! Didn’t see any surfers out there, it was way too dangerous!

I could’ve sat and watched the ocean for hours. The cyclone really was playing havoc with the sea, but the affect was mesmerising to watch.

 

Wedge-tailed Eagle

Fri 23rd December 2011

Here I am holding a massive Wedge-tailed Eagle! We were allowed to hold him for a short while and bask in his magnificance.

Matt says...

That’s one huge bird! I want one! He can eat small unwanted children from around the area.

 
Claire

Claire says...

He was very heavy, I can’t imagine how tired the keepers must get holding these birds all day!

 

Wedge Tail Eagle

This is a photo of the huge Wedge Tailed Eagle in flight at the free flight bird show. He’s well trained; flying back and forth between the trainers and skimming only 4-5 inches over the spectators heads!

Matt says...

This is the huge Wedge Tail Eagle! Massive wing span and very impressive talons. I wouldn’t want to be prey around this fella!

Attacus Atlas moth

Tue 25th October 2011

This moth is the largest in the world. It also earns the nickname the ‘Snake’s Head Moth’ because both tips of it’s forewings look like snake’s heads.

Matt says...

Imagine one of these Moths flying around your 100W light bulb! It would give you a fright as it’s the size of your open palm!

 
Claire

Claire says...

This moth was seriously huge, it has a wingspan of 8 inches!
