Following Sandra's recent email I paid a visit to Badja River Reserve at Numeralla to photograph Yellow-tufted Honeyeters.

I did get a couple of good shots but this poor shot shows the extreme flexibility of the YTH's neck and I thought it might amuse people.

Two almost fully-grown immature YTH's were observed, indicating mid-winter breeding at the site.
Also seen were Australian Ravens with immatures and Little Ravens only just beginning to breed (carrying sticks to nest) and in the paddocks over the bridge Diamond Firetail and Brown Treecreeper.

And at Jacobs Rd river frontage I saw a platypus!
