Friday 13 turns out lucky for Tern, Osprey and Darter

Friday 13. Unlucky for some. Lucky for some. CaspianTern whizzed in and out again with one of the fish the 50 or so Pelicans camped on the water this week have failed to scoop up.


Eastern Osprey made typical splash entry and came away clutching probable Tilapia.

Australasian Darter speared its fish and surfaced close by but swam off behind long grass before swallowing it.

Meantime, many of the Australian Pelicans were busier bathing than fishing.

Lucky me, catching some of the catches at Melaleuca viewing area, Townsville Town Common Conservation Park this morning.
