Dark, cold and wet is a good way to summarise a typical South Aussie winter and generally it's not conducive to good birding conditions.... (that's my excuse anyway!) hence I have been a little slack on the blog just of late!!
All this is about to change though! I can now see the light at the end of the tunnel! The days are getting longer and there has been a shift in the way the local birdlife is behaving! Calling, singing and scrapping with each other? gone now are the days of conserving energy and just surviving.... the breeding season has begun!! All around now the sublime sounds of all the local birdlife can be heard singing their little hearts out! Maybe not officially but nature knows no such calender... Spring has sprung! Happy days indeed!
Back to my lack of posts! Whilst conserving energy and hibernating during the depths of winter, I decided I needed a new camera to try to do justice to the beauty that nature provides! So with a new Canon 600D on my shoulder this Spring I am hoping to bring some of Australia's natural beauty to all who peruse this blog...
Below is the results of my first few days with my new camera....happy so far!
