I inteneded to try Possum Point this morning, but it was very windy, so I waited until 8:00 and went to Thomas Point.
There were a few birds close enough for decent pics, and the light was not bad, so I did OK.
I then stopped by my friend’s house on Thomas Point Road and found more nice birds in good light and fairly close. Yet another good winter’s day.
