Great Birding Moments #11 Grey Fantail

Grey Fantail

Grey Fantail

A few days ago we visited the St Kilda Mangrove Trail. After the walk we were standing on the balcony of the Interpretive Centre looking for wrens.

Just as I put the camera away a Grey Fantail flew up to us and landed on the rail only a metre away from me. It stayed there for only a few seconds before flitting off into the mangroves.

The photo above was of another bird taken earlier in the year. That individual was also unco-operative, turning its back on me just at the crucial moment.

One day I’ll get a good photo.
