Another destination we managed to cram in during last weeks time away was the Mt. Field National Park. From the main Office, it's just a short level walk through Myrtles, Tree Ferns and towering Swamp Gums to one of Tasmania's best known natural attractions, Russell Falls.
Along the track I found several types of fungi.
... and what is this one?
At the picnic ground a Wedge-tailed Eagle flew overhead at about 6 or 7 metres of the ground. It was being mobbed by 2 Ravens. The eagle did a complete roll over thrusting it’s talons out at the Ravens. Of course the whole thing happened so suddenly and was over so quickly that I just stood there, camera in hand and mouth hanging open.
We also seen Sulphur-crested Cockatoos and Scarlet Robins as well as all the usual 'picnic ground' type birds such as Black Currawong, Tasmanian Native Hens, and Superb Fairywrens.
Several Pademelons were seen including this one which was hanging around the picnic shelters.
