We have had the good fortune to spend a week on the Southern Great Barrier Reef with our friend Sue on board, and catamaran cruising friends Amanda & Neville on Bossa Nova, and now we are back on the mainland as you would have gathered with the publication of this post. Every stop you make along…
The bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica) is a migratory shorebird which can fly further than any other known bird. This long distance flyer is the subject of our #40 Bird Photography Challenge.
Looking a bit like the negative image of a tern, the Black Noddy (Anous minutus) is a striking pelagic seabird. We saw many during our recent cruise and knew this graceful bird had to be the focus of our #33 Bird Photography Challenge when we returned.
We feel so privileged to be spending time in the Capricornia Cays, part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Our first stop is North West Island, where we spend two nights.
