Spent a bit of time again down the Coorong looking for some waterbirds, was not disappointment, great to see the wading and shorebirds around, there were quiet a few birds here this day, most were a bit far away on a sand bar and I didn’t have my kayak with me so they were out of reach, never mind, a few came close by as I sat quietly and I managed some nice images hope you like them?

Well that just sums it up nicely I think…
