I like to visit the Chiltern area (North East Victoria) at least once a year and try to time it to Spring when the birds start to migrate south from the warmer states. One of the best spots for a good variety of birds is Bartley’s Block, a few kilometres north of the small township of Chiltern. When staying in the area I will visit Bartley’s twice a day: early morning and early evening. While a regular at Bartley’s Block, the Speckled Warbler is a difficult bird to photograph. It is busy and always on the move, hunting and patrolling its territory. On my last visit I finally found a warbler at the top of the scrub in the centre of the block. The Warbler was singing its heart out but stopped to watch me and make sure I moved on before it resumed singing.
