Beginning on the East Coast of Australia


Superb Fairy-wren

This is where my interest in bird photography specifically began. I noticed quite a bit of bird life on my afternoon walk and decided to take my camera with me. This Male Superb Fairy-wren decided to be friendly. I have found this family group at my local beach car park so approachable that I have watched them over the years and documented changes in eclipse male superb Fairy-wrens.


White-eared Monarch

The hook was set. White-faced Monarch, possibly a juvenile. This is a rare sighting for the Central Coast of NSW, and I was asked for permission to publish my sighting on Ememaea NSW. The White-eared Monarch’s normal southern limit is Iluka, NSW on the northern banks of the Clarence River nearly 600 Kilometres to the north. This was a brief chance meeting where I managed one photograph for later identification.


Buff-breasted Sandpiper

My first vagrant. Buff-breasted Sandpiper at Hexham Swamp, NSW Jan 2014. This vagrant wader is the Birdlife Australia Rarities Committee (BARC) 9th confirmed Australian record, first observed by Rod Warnock and Christina Port then several hundred of other birders. Buff-breasted Sandpipers breed in the high Arctic regions of Alaska, Canada and an island off Russia, on well drained tundra with tussocks.
