I’ve had numerous reports of Tawny Frogmouths over recent weeks. Sadly these observations have included a couple of roadside fatalities. It was pleasing then to receive a call on Saturday from a fellow photographic tragic, Dean of Pound Lane, reporting a family trio – an adult with two fluffy juveniles not long out of the nest. These wonderful birds are common throughout the Newstead township and surrounding bushland – it’s always a delight to encounter them.
Many thanks to Dean and Caroline for letting me know about their presence – just one of a myriad of species in their vibrant bushland garden.
