Misty Morning

G'day to you all, it was a misty morning across the river this morning, not too bad as it was clearing with the warm sunshine. As I walked along the bank I could see and hear loads of activity. There were a lot of different birds out on the mud and a few singing in the trees.

As I came up on the first bend out on the mud were two colony's of Gulls and closer in Red Shanks as well as Godwit's. I later spotted some Mallard's (asleep as all ways).

In flight

Dig deep
He had to really pull this one out

By this time I was up to Bloors Wharf and sitting on the rail was this Starling singing it's head off. I walked very slowly up and got real close to him before he was away.

I then made my way to the deep creek and on the way.

Oyster catchers taking off
Then as I was lining up another shot I spotted

Godwit's Feeding
.As I was here I took a shot of Horrid Hill this shows a little of the mist.

Thanks to Eileen for identify this bird

Mallards asleep as always
I now decided to make my way back to the car as it was getting hot and I wanted to get a drink.
A slow walk back to the car passing some friendly dog walkers along the way.
I was hoping to see that Robin but no, I do come across this Crow on the shoreline.

This bird had attitude as all he was doing was shouting 

This is the first time I have captured a Crow in flight 


Seed pods 

That was it for today, I may not get out tomorrow.
