CommentOn my first post ISO 5k lock down trip I headed to Braeside Park. With a wet winter and spring I knew it would have plenty of bird activity. This impressive Swamp Harrier with a tatty tail was also sure there would be plenty of birds to choose from. The good thing for a bird photographer is that a fly over like this will create photo opportunities both of the raptor and it's potential prey.
