More birds - alive!

Very pleased to report more bird sightings this trip to Phillip Island -- this time alive! In fact, this time the theme is baby birds, perhaps not surprising, given the season.

So far today, we have seen:
- two little cygnets with mummy and daddy black swans;
- two baby penguins nestling in separate burrows at the nobbies;
- a quintet of baby cape barren geese with mummy and daddy.

We also saw a beautiful wedge tail eagle soaring high over the wetlands (probably checking out the cygnets), various other waterbirds, multitudes of wallabies...

A very satisfying day of wildlife spotting.
