New Bird Species:

  • Black-winged kite
  • African swamphen
  • Pin-tailed whydah
  • Jackal buzzard
  • Mandarin duck
  • Spur-winged goose
  • Black-headed heron

Images are not of the greatest quality, but for now will have to suffice as record shots that I have added to my Woodbridge Island Bird Species Index.

  • Canon EOS 7D Mark II / EF 400mm f/5.6L USM lens
  • Canon EOS R6 / RF 800mm f/11 IS STM lens
