At the Beach

Went down to the beach for a fish last week (first time fishing for a lot of years,been diving) and of course could not leave the camera behind :-)

At the Coorong, so fishing involves a kayak over the Coorong and then about a fifteen minute walk across the dunes to the beach.

Spied a lovely Hobby on the drive in then just a nice amount of birdlife on the beach to keep it interesting, but not too hectic.

Weather was great so all in all a lovely, relaxing few hours.

Crackers as always Nick. Love the Hobby. Still haven't had the pleasure of seeing one of these.

Great shots Rick, fishing and birding, life is good :)

Shorty......Canon gear



Great photos .... I like the scene in the first with the small cluster of terns on that large expanse of beach and the surf in background

Would love to see a Hobby. I read the other day that Pied Butcherbirds have been seen co-operating with the Australian Hobby pursuing small birds. I can only imagine the Butcherbirds would take the kill once the Hobby has caught the prey. 

Ditto Shorty, "fishing and birding, life is good", just need a few cold beers and you have it made.
