Toured down my favourite country road today with flash new flash and hopes of finding Lemon-bellied Flycatcher (Microeca flavigaster) in coastal woodland. Bird turned up briefly. Flash failed, then overcompensated.
Did better unflashed with Blue-winged Kookaburra (Dacelo leachii) glaring down from distant height.
Better yet with flashy unflashed Brahminy Kite (Haliastur indus) sitting unruffled by gusty winds and my approach on foot.
More flash on this Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus). Like bird's surroundings, flash new flash rather complicated.
