The Red-Browed Finch was the most common visitor to the water hole at the Nature Reserve during my visit. Often coming in groups of 2 to 6. This young finch was more content at sitting, rather than darting around the vegetation, allowing me to get a clear shot of the bright colouring.

Ocean Grove Nature Reserve protects the last remaining stand of original woodland on the Bellarine Peninsula, making it a haven for native plants and animals.

I enjoy photography and love the freedom that digital photography allows you. I enjoy photographing landscapes, coastal scenes and nature.

    Nice to see it was sitting still for a while. These little birds seem to be constantly moving.
    Looks like a great spot for bird photography. Another great shot John.

  • Thanks for the comment. Luckily this was a juvenille bird, and not quite as busy as the rest of the group & allowed a resting moment to capture it.
