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:
A family of Brahminy Kites graced us:
Royal Spoonbills and Great Egrets seem happy enough together:
Some arty poses from the Spoonbills:
Some White-headed Stilts doing their thing:
No sign of the Ospreys, but the classic precarious nest was high up in a dead tree:
To cap it off, as we neared port, a young White-bellied Sea Eagle drifted across above us:
A relaxing couple of hours. Thanks to Byron Bay Cruises. (byronbaycruises.com.au)

Nice, but are they not Black-winged Stilts?
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.
