Diamond Firetail, Cooleman Ridge NR, 17.5.09c

Hi Everyone, internet is back up!! Sorry it has been out, but now I can follow your photos again, as well as posting some of mine.

Here are some shots of Diamond Firetail from Sunday at the Ridge. For the first time in ages, I went belly on the grass and army-crawled towards the Diamond Firetails. It works, you can approach them a lot closer that way. I don't reckon I really nailed the whole affair, had some pretty good views, but the way with Diamond Firetails (and other ground birds as well) is on the stomach!

 

Sadly no pelagic off Wollongong tomorrow, I was really hoping to go, but it just didnt work out.
