These tiny Red-capped Plovers were dwarfed by the appearance overhead of an immature White-bellied Sea-eagle … seen on a brief visit to Cairn Curran late yesterday.

  3. Hi
    While in now live in WA I enjoy seeing your pics as I used to live at Dunolly and did a lot of birding in Central Victoria. So thanks for your site.
