A relaxing couple of hours on the Brunswick River at Brunswick Heads. Brunswick Heads Revisited would be a good title for a film – oh yes, it was; one of the unheralded John Clarke early gems.

As always plenty of Australian Pelicans:

Royal Spoonbills and Great Egrets seem happy enough together:

Some White-headed Stilts doing their thing:

To cap it off, as we neared port, a young White-bellied Sea Eagle drifted across above us:

  1. Interesting question. There seems some international difference on whether they are a sub-species of black-winged, whether they are to be called pied stilts; or whether they are now a separate species. i only have CSIRO book here and they say now called White-Headed Stilt.
