Georges River National Park

Silver Gull (Chroicocephalus novaehollandiae)

On this sunny Good Friday the family headed for the Georges River National Park for a picnic. The site was fairly crowded and opportunities for exploring were very limited as often happens when in mixed company, but Hapsis and I had great fun photographing the seagulls and other wildlife that ventured our way.

Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides)

Unfazed by the human activity in the area, this Australian Raven (Corvus coronoides) spent quite some time mingling with the seagulls on the beach.
