We took some friends of ours to stay at Amamoor Homestead B&B, it was a fantastic relaxing time even though it rained most of the time we were there. The following images were captured from the homestead verandah. Ken and Carol put on a fantastic breaky to boot!!

Fan-tailed Cuckoo

Little Friarbird

These photos were taken from Eagleby Wetlands and the surrounding area. The Black-necked storks were in a field at the end of Eagleby Road. It was a real highlight seeing these large birds nesting. We travelled home via Gould Adams Park to try and find the Swift Parrots that had been frequently seen there. It took some searching but after a while we found them. Unfortunately we didn't get any photos as the Noisy Miners kept chasing them away.
