Yesterday was Australia Day, or as many appropriately call it 'Invasion Day'. We decided to do something a little different this year and once again were up at 5.00am to hike the Spectacles Aboriginal Heritage Trail in the Beeliar Regional Park. It was the perfect morning for a hike, the temperature lower than it has been for a while, although the early start was still a good idea. Show you the pics tomorrow. Along the way the sound of small insect eating birds flitting high up from tree to tree was a delight, trying to catch a shot was another story. The Rainbow bee-eaters above and below are so pretty, you can see their gorgeous colours much clearer in the one minute video HERE..
This little bird below teased me for a good ten minutes, darting here and there before landing, looking down at me as if to say 'this is your chance but you'd better be quick', not the best shot but what can you do right! P seems to think it is a grey fantail, its fantail looks a bit worse for wear. More from the walk tomorrow. Happy Wednesday, take care and stay safe..
