Colour and movement


I’ve been somewhat frustrated over recent weeks chasing Rainbow Bee-eaters. The usual suspects at the Newstead Cemetery have been elusive and time has prevented visits to other local haunts. Luckily there are a few pairs nesting along the Loddon River at the moment and it was pleasing to get some images of adults arriving with food for the next generation.

  1. We’ve had a number of nesting birds that haven’t played by our rules this year as well. Perhaps the food source or the weather has played some part in that. And that site at the cemetery is such a good spot for following them.

  2. Reblogged this on Birds as Poetry and commented:
    Wishing I could take the time to go looksee at Geoff’s Bee-eaters. Otherwise enjoy the master at work.

  3. Beautiful!!

    What a lovely Christmas Eve gift

    Thank you.


  4. Good to see you’ve found another spot for them Geoff. The cemetery crew have certainly been a bit hard to get a glimpse of this year.

  5. Hello Geoff, Julie and I would like to wish you and your family a happy and safe festive season and a prosperous 2016.
    I’ve been keeping a keen watch on your daily posts and enjoying so much. Your recent post on the Kookas on the Loddon, where incidentally was I taught to swim by my sister Pat. Anyway I love the image of the Kooka with the cheeky grin and the spiked hair. The Rainbows remind me of times with dad near the cemetary and also fairy martin swallows.
    Thankyou for Dad’s photo display.

    Cheers and wishes from Mal and Julie
