Taken at the Noosa Northshore camp grounds.

My son Ethan (a future bird watcher in the making) spotted this Bush Stone-curlew for me. We noticed it run past our camp site, but by the time I grabbed hold of my camera to take a photo, I couldn't find him.

Luckily Ethan has young eyes and spotted him straight away, even though it was camouflaged and standing perfectly still.
