The Bird Report

Every Friday at 7am I am off bird watching somewhere in the Warwick area. Today I was at the Condamine River a little North-west of Henry Joppich Park.

The highlight of the morning was three Azure Kingfishers and a juvenile white-bellied sea eagle. The clouds of fairy martins were also wonderful to see.
