Lake Lorne Kites' Conjugal Bliss

Lake Lorne Reserve in Drysdale (see map) is buzzing with avian activity at the moment. I've been watching a pair of Whistling Kites building a nest for a while now (see previous post) but today they took things a little further...

While there I also managed to get a half reasonable shot of a White-plumed Honeyeater - common enough around here but very difficult to photograph as they are constantly moving and when feeding usually hidden among foliage.

...oh, and there are waterbirds there too :-)

Apologies for the inconvenience but I have had to turn on word verification to avoid spam (I was getting 10-20 a week)
