Rising Moon to Sunset.

What a way to finish the day. After starting out with a very heavy fog that did not clear until nearly 11am we were having an afternoon cuppa on the verandah when a great variety of birds started flying in and out of the trees across the road from us. We had Figbirds, Noisy Miners, Blue-faced Honeyeaters, Black-faced Cuckoo-shrikes, Spangled Drongos, Little Friarbirds, Magpie-larks, and the odd Scaly-breasted Lorikeets and Rainbow Lorikeets flying past as well.

The Moon was rising in a clear sky.

Figbirds, Noisy Miners and most of the other birds were hawking for insects.

This fiery Sunset marked the end of the day.
