A great new catch!

Look at what I got on the rocks! The two Oyster Cathers at the back I know, but the one at the front is a new one.

I will also show you some other birds on the rocks here and one can never know what can suddenly appear at the beach.
We are not the sun-tanning types, as we rather enjoy walks on the sharp rocks to search for life in or on them.
Come and look.

The new grey bird is a "Eurasian Curlew" (Numenius aquata) and they are listed as "Near Threatened".
There were now three " African Oyster Catchers" (Haematopus moquini) behind the Curlew.

What a beauty and I am so glad that I can tick him off my list of the seabirds.

This Little Egret (Egretta garzetta) had a new funky hairstyle.

Here's another look at them.

So yes, this is what we call a break from the daily duties and the sea is an excellent medium to clear the mind and to erase the stress with it's salty air. A strong wind was blowing and we walked around with runny noses, as our brains were being dry-cleaned by the sea air.
All for free of course. What a bargain and a new bird to boot.

And That's All Friends!

Those are lovely creatures. I'm sure they are looking for fishes to hunt down and feast on.
I like that hairstyle of the little Egret. Very crazy!😃

Hahaha, they have been feasting for the whole day and they were taking a break here mate.
Yeah, maybe some of our youngsters here will copy that funky look.

Blessings.

Blessings too.
Have a great day.

The Eurasian Curlew has got quite an interesting looking and long beak, but most I like the look of the Little Egret with his Mohawk and the yellow feet which look almost to me as if he had rubber boots on 😁

Cool shots as always, Zac, you're the bird master for me 👍

Btw, I have been on a short ride around town and the lake this afternoon. On a short stop I have seen some kind of bird of prey in the sky above me, but till I have got my camera out of my backpack it was already too far away and so I have got a shot of the meadow and the sky only, but I'm sure there's a bird somewhere on the trees in the back 🤣

Hey, those are not yellow boots, they are the new Egret (Michael) Jackson sneakers.
This guy was sporting the last Egret fashions with his black socks and his retro hairstyle 🤣

Oh, I read your reply to Marian and she said that you are great for driving without your camera ready (hinting at me) and I say that now you have missed the only shot in the world of a flying Emu 🤣

But in any case that is a lovely shot my friend.

Cheers and thanks.

Good afternoon Zac,

haha, where can I buy these? They would real eyecatchers 😂

While I was taking the camera out of the backpack I said to myself that I would be too late anyway like always, looked up and the bird was gone 🤣🤣🤣
Your wife is so very right with me, but not with you if I compare the amount of bird photos you have to them I have 😉
A flying Emu would certainly have been a sensation 😁


Cheers with !PIZZA and !BEER

Good morning Hannes,

You will have to find an Egret and put your order in for the yellow sneakers 🤣

It also happens to me only to see a fabulous something and when I lift the camera, it is not "On", so I miss the shot 🤣 I call them "Meant for my eyes only" instances 🤣

My wife was tring to tell me that I should put my camera away when I drive Hannes, as she then doesn't have to hold the steering. I am sure one of these days she is going to crash us, as she steers a bit erratically. I tell her to go left then she turns right and I miss the shot 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

Good afternoon Zac,

you know I'm not you and I will never find an Egret - I think I will have to keep my black boots. The yellow sneakers might look cool on the black Harley though 😂

Now, do you really want a reply from a policeman when you say you're photographing while you're driving a car and you would blame your co-driver if you crash 🤣🤣🤣


!BEER and !PIZZA - nice 😃

Good evening Hannes,

What a day and I haven't even done my second post yet. (Just did the first now)

Yeah, yellow sneakers, yellow socks and underpants, and yellow cap for when you get off the bike. We will call you "Mellow Yellow" 🤣

Well, the policeman is a mountain goat and he is very far away, so I can share all of my secrets with him 🤣
So, if we get caught and In have to go to court, I will simply deny everything like our polticians do over here when they get caught for corruption.

The judge will ask me what happenned and I will say that I don't know. as I was sitting on the back seat of the car. Now who can argue with that ? 🤣

Cheers and thanks.

Good evening Zac,

don't stress yourself too much, my friend. I haven't had much time today either and will go offline in a moment.

I think I don't even have anything in yellow ... I remember I have had a yellow rain jacket once, but I don't think it still exists, so these clothes would change me completely - as long as Barry Manilow doesn't come over and sings I wouldn't mind 🤣

Well, you're very right, and the mountain goat would keep your secrets secret anyway 🤐

And what would you reply if the judge asked you who was driving? In that case you could say "an Austrian Mountain Goat was driving". If the judge asks the Austrian police to find me they will tell him that they can't find me, because some of the policemen know me, you know? 🤣


!PIZZA and !BEER - sounds like a nice dinner :)

Hahaha, it is highly improbable not to get stressed in this country Hannes.
Why would we allow a ship from India into our harbour to happily offload rice if all of the ship's crew have the new Covid variant?
3000 people are dying in India every day and now they have placed the ship under quarantine, but the crew has already worked on shore.

To beat this, a passenger that tested positive for Covid has landed here in a plane from India ???
I thought all passengers should have Covid free certificates ???
Now what about the other passengers and the airline crews???
We are comitting suicide if you ask me.

Nope, I also don't have anything in yellow, as I am scared that someone like Barry Manilow will come and hug me 🤣

Oh yes and I am also keeping the mountain goat's secrets, so that his wife doesn't hurt him 🤣

Now that is a great plan my friend. So I will indeed tell the judge that the Austrain mountain goat was driving and that he ran away. I just hope that the judge doesn't have a brother, or a cousin that is also a judge in Austria 🤣🤣🤣

Cheers and thanks.
