Straddie in July

Straddie again, sorry for the delay in this post as I have been ill for a few weeks but am on the mend now thanks to my mum - she made me go to the doctor. Well it was a great trip this time although not as many sea birds as in the seagulls and terns, although the Pied Oystercatchers were up in numbers from previous months.

My parents came over with this trip so I did the driving so I didn't get that many advantages to get many photographs during the surveys but I still got some good ones - and the most unusual is probably this pic below.

There were also quite a few pelicans around on Flinders Beach this time, and this particular one was feeding near some local fisher folk.

And of course we have the token sunset pictures - as I can't go anywhere and not get a few good pictures of the sunset. These pics of the sunset were taken not far from where the ferry terminal is at Dunwich on North Stradbroke Island.

While this was taken on the evening walk along Flinders Beach coming back from the afternoon count and giving a hint at how cold the next morning was going to be.

The pink sky in the evening - also a hint it is going to be cold in the morning but also a sign of a beautiful day to come.

Well until next time - I hope you are all well and having a great time

Gorgeous capture of the Australian Pelican Tarzan! I really like the shot of the beach with the water pooling on the sand too. Beautiful!
