With half an hour to spare this morning before heading to Sale, I decided to do a quick monitor of the parrot nest boxes on the golf course.
There was a little action at one of them, so I settled in for a few pics by resting against a nearby tree. In doing so, I dislodged some bark and disturbed this bloke.
I think it’s an Isopeda, perhaps vasta? Anyway, it was quite confiding and allowed for a couple of shots.
In the meantime, the easterns at the nest box had flown off to pick over the seeds from the grasses on the adjacent fairway. I’ll just have to return another day for the birds.
