    A couple of hours at the Coomera River Weir proved rewarding with some nice closeup action. The young Striated Heron in particular was not fazed by our presence coming up very close.

    Binna Burra – 18 December 2018

    It had been a long time since I had visited Binna Burra so I headed up early one morning. With a forecast for potential rain and an ever increasing fog as I got closer it was not looking that promising. On arrival the skies cleared a little bit and I was able to see a…
