Almost time to say goodbye...

Well it's nearly time to leave The Bay of Fires, we have been here a month and loved (almost) every moment of it excluding a couple of crazy days over the silly season!  Photography-wise this is one of the most beautiful places on earth.  I can see why the Lonely Planet and National Geographic credit it wuth having some of the best beaches in the world.  It's still so natural without a high-rise building in sight.

Here are the rest of my bird images from the area, it was exciting to capture the babies and also a thrill to see the "Turbo Chook/Native Hen" as these are a flightless bird which is now extinct on the mainland of Australia due to Foxes, Dingoes & Wild Dogs.

This place will be forever etched in my memory as one of the most special places to stay.  Such great memories and photo ops at every turn.

I believe this is a young Black-Faced Cormorant
