A friend took me to Churchill National Park a while back. I have been looking for new sites around the greater Melbourne with good photo opportunities. It was a the first time I had visited this site and it was pretty good. There are plenty of tracks and I found good range of forest bird species and a colony of Superb Fairywrens including this nicely coloured male below.

The Superb Fairy-wrens are always a good find Malt, we see them everywhere we go. They look so superb in their breeding plumage, as does this one you captured.

Thanks Ashley, I see them quite often too but usually they don’t sit still long enough to get an image – not for me anyway.

Great place for photogenic wallabies and nesting Satin Flycatchers. Also for an easily accessible tough walk to the top, or on to Lysterfield.
thanks for the comments Mike, I certainly plan to go back and explore more…
