Australasian Grebe ( Tachybaptus novaehollandiae)
This little bird arrived here this year (2011) and stayed for about three months. Hard to get a picture of him as he would always go to the middle of the swamp, rather timid. Common in Australia, NZ and near by Pacific islands.
Australian Kestrel (Falco cenchroides)
A great little bird of prey, not a lot of them on the island. You can find them along the lagoon bank, Blinky beach dune and Malabar. Breeds here spring, summer. Will hover into the wind whilst stalking prey.
Australian Wood Duck (Chenonetta jubata)
This one has been here for about a week now 18/12/11. Not a common Duck for the island. Found throughout most of Australia, not sure what he was doing here?
