Well it definitely has been a long time between posts!! I must apologise for such a long time since I last posted but life has been extremely hectic with family matters but after weeks away off and on over the past 4 months I think (hope) it has settled for a while so that I can get back to work!!
I have however taken lots of photos over the last few months so I will attempt to do a bit of a ‘catch up’ over the next few weeks.
These particular birds are emus – or to be more precise Eastern Coastal Emus (Dromaius novaehollandiae) of which there are apparently only 15% of the original population left in the coastal Northern Rivers region.
I have heard of the Coastal Emus but have never before seen them. I cam across this particular group in a newly harvested cane field not far from the township of Maclean in the Clarence River Valley, Northern Rivers NSW. They were casually grazing in this paddock but I was not overly keen to get too close given their large bulk, legs & toes!! So all these photos are taken with a zoom lens!!
