Kathryn takes on some decent size waves.

 

Sitting at home in these terrible conditions with rain and wind from the east, it’s good to just look back and consider how well off we are here in the Mollymook Milton Ulladulla area even though its winter, we have enjoyed nice sunny days and a good surf during the day this past week, until today.    (Click on pics to enlarge)

Bird Photography: Crescent Heads July 2020

Regent-Bowerbird

 

Sightings of the above ‘Regent Bowerbird’ are usually very rare. This pic was my sole sighting over 7 days at Crescent Heads, ‘it was there one moment and gone the next’. Reportedly one of the quietest Bowerbirds, seldom calling away from the bower, usually just soft grating calls.

I would spend about an hour each morning photographing the local bird life that were relatively few in number due to the winter months and I am sure would be more plentiful during spring. Most mornings were spent at a variety of areas surrounding the Crescent Head beach, mainly north and south sides, although on one morning I took a drive to Hat Head and walked around the headland, but being closer to mid-day I only saw a few birds in the Hat Head National Park. Birds that were new to me included the ‘White-cheeked-Honeyeater’, (I thought it was a Yellow Faced Honeyeater like we have down here in the Morton National Parks.) Nor was I familiar with the ‘Fantail-Cuckoo’, the ‘Masked-Lapwing’, the ‘Brown-Thornbill’ and the ‘Rufous-Whistler’. A very pretty bird and there were many of them was the ‘Welcome-swallow’. I hope you enjoy looking at the different species.

I would like to acknowledge bird enthusiast Charles Dove who helped me identify the various bird types.

Best to click and make the pics bigger

Crescent Heads was picture perfect last week whilst the NSW South Coast was being pounded by gale force winds and a huge surf. Water temperature reportedly around the 20.c mark with the sun shining and most people in shirts and shorts. I took a number of pics from a distance to give those who have never been to this surfing mecca a broader view of how it looks. The waves present a easy slow run for a distance varying from 200 metres to 400 metres in length, with a variety of areas to catch your ideal wave.

Why travelled anywhere else for a perfect surf that is suitable for all skill levels?
