An unusual sound in the valley this morning - the honking of geese. And there, flying above Stewart Creek, was a flock of Magpie Geese. Although they are not rare birds they are certainly not a frequent sight here. No chance to grab the camera so this is a cheating-shot off the internet!
On my way to pick the last of the Lychees (after the Rainbow Lorikeets have just about stripped all the trees!) three Bar-shouldered Doves flew up into a tree, so I just managed to snap this one. Mostly we see them foraging on the ground.
