An unexpected close encounter, this is the first time I have seen a Silvereye Zosterops lateralis in the valley. I was out walking slowly, looking for birds to photograph and as usual they were keeping their distance, when this Silvereye appeared only metres away from me on a bush! I managed to get a few quick shots before he flew back into the scrub after realising I was there.
Although one of Australia’s smallest birds, the Silvereye is capable of travelling great distances during migration, with Silvereyes from the most southerly regions of Tasmania travelling all the way up to Southern Queensland. [Source]
Thanks for dropping by 😀
