Canola crop near Picnic Point, 19th December 2016

It’s harvest time on the plains – perhaps the best season for years. The birds are making the most of the bounty as well.

This Australian Reed-warbler sneaked in by happenstance … spotted on my way home as it appeared briefly on a reed. The pale gape suggests it may be an immature.

  4. Great photos Geoff, you have kept me enthralled all year with your photos. I have started taking some bird photos myself, but I have a long way to go yet. Have a great Christmas and new Year.
