|White Albatross Holiday Park|
From there we crossed over the headland to Shelly Beach. On the way we saw an adult Rainbow Bee-eater feeding a younger bird but they keep moving around and we couldn't get a close-up.

|The pool is long enough to do laps.|

|This Darter was also keen to catch the rising sun.|

When we got out of the car we noticed that there was a male Regent Honeyeater moving around the trees lining the carpark. We spent some time trying to get a photo of him to no avail. A local excitedly told us that there was a Rainbow Bee-eater on the walk. We said we were trying to get a photo of the Regent Bower bird and he dismissively said they were common around there and we really should hurry along to get a photo of the Bee-eater. Where we live Rainbow Bee-eaters are seasonally quite common. It just goes to show that one persons oyster is another persons pearl. To this day we have still not taken a photo of an adult male Regent Bower bird.
The carpark turned out to be quite a good birding spot. We saw a Dollarbird overhead and several Variegated Fairy-wrens fluttering about.
