Raptors of Inala 2016
When we stayed at Inala over Christmas 2014 I used the new bird hides at Inala for the first time and was blown away by the experience. At that time the "40 Spotted Tower" got me straight into the world of the 40-Spotted Pardalotes; tiny but spectacular birds that are endangered and endemic to Tasmania. The results of hours of watching and "shooting" can be seen here: Little gems of Inala.
Already then our daughter and I have spent some time in the Raptor hide, which had been completed just prior to our arrival and we got great views of a juvenile Swamp Harrier for example, but it became very clear that we would need to come back in winter, when the raptors can be expected to turn up more reliably. The raptors come in and feed in the paddock on road-kill moved there preventing the birds being killed themselves while feeding on the roads.
The time for another Tasmanian adventure had come on the long weekend in June 2016!
The resulting shots of just three days of intensive photography are a very pleasing reward for this trip (4 species of raptors!) conducted at a great place - Inala - enabled by true friends. My daaughter was cranky the the Wedgetalied Eagels didn't show u this time, but this is probably a good reason to go back one day.
See, enjoy Grey Goshawk (White Morph), Brown Goshawk, Brown Falcon and two individuals of White-bellied Sea Eagle in action – and they don’t even know you are there so minimal impact too. So go and see yourself!
