Bird life during Spring in the rural areas of Milton NSW
“Birds are widely recognised as good indicators of environmental health. A farm with a rich diversity of birds will also have a relatively high diversity of trees, shrubs, mammals, reptiles, frogs and invertebrates – and is also a guide to the overall property condition and sustainability of its agricultural practices” writes Ben Humphries the Southern NSW Woodland Bird Project Officer, Birdlife Australia.
The following are a sample of the images taken in October 2020 over a three-day period (each a brief session) with permission of the owner of this property that adjoins the NSW coastal village of Milton. They are testimony to the beauty, life and health of this rural area.
I wish to credit Charles Dove for his help in identifying some of these birds and his help in getting me started in ‘Bird Life’ photography.
