Out on the east coast

The Safari is up morth on the east coast for a few days. \not much to report just yet. Sunny spells and heavy showers driven along by abrisk offshore wind today.

We've not seen many birds yet but a trip down to a local beach had us watching horrendously distsnt Little Terns (156) across the bay. We'll get much closer views later in the week.  A drive down to check out a local birding hotspot gave us a fluky Grey Partridge (157) fly over the hedge only a few yards in front of the car.

Where to next? More in-depth safari-ing in the morning so more news tomorrow.
In the meantime let us know who's flipping over the roads in your outback.
