Nice, you seem to always manage to find yourself in the right spot at the right time!

excellent pics, you need to buy a monopod for your videos (or stop drinking)

Thanks Ryu, i have had some luck of late.

Thanks Peter, i have a good monopod but don't like carrying it around with me. I will carry it from now on so i don't have to give up drinking :)

Thanks Devster.

After you cross Jerra creek on the bike path they are usually on the left between the bridge and the gravel track leading to the left that goes over the old foot bridge. Did you get down to see the Grey Goshawk i reported on the chatline yesterday?

Thanks. I'll have a look next time I'm there. I'm not going to get too hopeful though- when I found out the location of the boobook that had been there for months and had a look, it was the weekend that it disappeared. And unfortunately, I couldn't go yesterday with a stomach bug although I did see the report. Hopefully, one day.
