After our latest wader count we took a friend out to Inskip Point to look for the Kelp Gull which we did not find, but there were quite a few bush birds to be seen along the track. As I was walking first I came upon this beautiful male Variegated Fairy-wren which posed very conveniently for a photo. While admiring it I thought what a good photo it would make, forgetting that I had my camera in its bag over my shoulder as I had been carrying a telescope and tripod most of the day in place of this. When the others caught up to me they said "did you get a photo"?
Variegated Fairy-wren (male) (Malurus lamberti)
Rufous Whistler (male) (Pachycephala rufiventris)
At the end of the track we came across this male Rufous Whistler, catching only a rear view. Among others seen were Rainbow Bee-eaters, Varied Triller and Collared Kingfisher.
