Happy New Year!

Beautiful Firetail

I brought in the new year with my favourite walk around the Curra Moors track in the Royal National Park. After a slow start and a bit of a stake-out at the Curra Brook crossing things started to warm up. I was hoping to photograph some Origma (Rock Warblers), seen here before, but was treated instead to an uncharacteristic show of bravado by a pair of Beautiful Firetails. They're usually skulking birds, staying close to cover offering nothing more than a red flash of rump but these two put on a real show.
