Variety along the shoreline

The shoreline of Cairn Curran can be relied upon to provide a rich variety of bird life. From the small and subtle, such as this Australian Pipit.

Pipits often look for small outcrops to use as lookouts.


Note that distinctive white eye-brow.

To the large and showy like this Great Egret, one of three hunting in the area where Captain’s Creek joins the storage.

Always elegant in flight.
