As the storm gathered on Thursday evening I enjoyed the sight of three Caspian Terns hunting near Picnic Point. Their diving skills easily topped my camera skills – I only managed a single, distant shot of one of the birds as it dived, projectile like, to capture a fish. Caspian Terns are extraordinarily beautiful and graceful birds – how lucky we are to have them in central Victoria. With the lake level rapidly dropping we’ll lose the expanses of open water they require for hunting, forcing them north towards Baringhup. Catch them while you can.
