Distance far from only problem posed
Happy run of Australian Little Bittern (Ixobrychus dubius) sightings for two mornings. Much successful fishing action, though from about 60 metres away so not so great photographically. And no way short of boat to get closer. Anyone got a 600mm lens to spare?
Elsewhere in Tyto the birds have been persisting in popping up on perches short of ideal. Thus, Rainbow Bee-eater (Merops ornatus), definitely not poster-perfect.
Australian Reed-Warbler (Acrocephalus australis) lands on the wrong stem.
Tawny Grassbird (Megalurus timoriensis) won't quit the guava tangles.
And White-throated Gerygone (Gerygone albogularis) too high and mighty to pose at my level. But I love 'em all anyway.
