Hi all,
Yesterday I saw an Australian hobby on the powerlines that go over the train track at Woy woy

        I was observing a breeding pair of Australian Hobby last weekend while we were camped on the banks of the Murray at Waikerie . It helped made a relaxing trip even more enjoyable.
        I also had good views of a Brown Quail, White-browed Babbler and nesting Variegated wrens with 3 eggs in the nest.  The male Variegated Wren is a superb looking bird.  This was a lifer for me.
        There were also plenty of Caspian Terns cruising up the river and smaller terns as well which I was not able to ID properly. Little Terns maybe ?
