Yes Adrian, found one blown out of a nest when I was a kid. Could not find the nest, so raised him to adulthood. Never clipped his wing, and he perched in our apricot tree until one night  the call of nature took him away. Broke my schoolboy heart, but about a year later he turned up with a mate as if to say goodbye. Never saw him again.
We now see them on our property, and they bring back my memories of 'Tawny'..

This little fella is part of a family that lives in an old gum tree near my sisters place. The adult pair have been there for several years and have raised several sets of chicks. They don't make much of a nest but it has been in the same spot for years. The currawongs give them hell but those adult birds are fierce protectors.
      We rescued one chick that fell out of the nest and placed it back on a branch fork and it proceeded to clime back up to the nest. The adults took a dim view of our touching the youngster  and came at us like stealth bombers, but now they do not pay us much attention.

Socked in with cloud at my place in Melbourne, so I hope that someone has been able to capture a few good shots of the Super-moon.

The Super Moon over Canberra.

Looks a bit brighter tonight but otherwise like any other moon.
Some sharp eyes may spot a few foreign dark spots on the moon. They are clouds between my cam and the moon.

There have been rumours of Canon coming out with one to match or exceed the capability of the P900, but it is clear that in the right hands that the P900 does an awesome job.

The Super Moon is approx 14% larger and 30% brighter than the average run of the mill full moon but I doubt that many people would notice. Most may think it is brighter than what they are used to seeing.
     To me it appeared very bright and clear in our Canberra sky although now some cloud has rolled in, so probably will not get another pic tonight

Thanks for the compliments but I think any talent I may have is about as slick as a rampaging bull elephant at Floriade.
The camera helps a bit I reckon
One thing is for sure and is that with the P900 you will have no need for interchangeable lenses

Thats ok..
No challenge.. i was just hoping that you are doing well with your SDC2300

In Vic.. its hard to detect, as the Mozzies are soo bad!
So it will be a while before i go detecting i think.. 
hmmm then again...
 Mike does want the 19inch zed coil..
Better buy heaps of mozzie off spray stufff.. Very Happy

The detector is great Jen although my finds to date are just coins n bits of jewellery, sinkers, fish hooks and  bottle caps.
      That is one thing I like about the Infinium at the beach. It can  ID bottle caps approx 85% of the time using the reverse discrimination.
With or without discrimination, I still dig all targets inc the bottle caps. It is a pain but the only way to nail all good targets.

This Little Corella is not normally found in Canberra. It is a bit further East than where it should be yet here it is in my back yard.
There is a pair of them  but they nicked off before I could get a shot of both in one frame.
