The Safari barely saw a thing today, not for want of trying, we simply couldn't see more than a few feet.

Two Redshanks at 50 feet (17m)
Mirror Ball at 200 yards
News came in this arvo that two photographers had been rummaging around in the scrub trying to find the Long Eared Owls and flushed them - marvelous - NOT!!! If you are thinking of visiting and aren't sure where to look please ask or join one of the Ranger's Sunday morning guided walks. Photo opportunities aren't always guaranteed as with all wildlife photography! In the meantime please STAY ON THE PATHS or they'll disappear for the rest of the winter which is no use to anyone!
The Peregrine was on the tower while we were out with Frank yesterday tea-time, might have been there again today but there was no way we were going to be able to see it.
Where to next? No more fog on Patch 2 or elsewhere please. We have some stuff to deliver which might give us the chance to have a shuffy for the Iceland Gull on the way back as it seems to be  hanging around a certain road junction that has a raft of fast food joints.
In the meantime let us know if there was any visibility in your outback.
