  The summer birding doldrums are always a good time to poke around in musty old folders of bird pics.  These lamentably poor images were bravely taken with a small point and shoot camera, as my big lens languished in Sydney for most of my 'Strayan ramblings.  Most of these sightings were from the top end, and a few from the Whitsundays...I think.  It's depressing how quickly memories fade - which gets to the point of this blog.  It's my scrapbook/bird diary, tasked with preserving some jottings before they are consigned to the oblivion of mental senescence.
