Dabchick from Floating hide.

Postby Bill F Cash » Wed Sep 26, 2018 4:46 pm

Hi In the 'Sightings" section there is something Inposted about NZ Dabchick nesting for the third year at the Taylor Dam in Blenheim. Infact there are now two pair present. I posted a couple of photos but Matt posted a couple of even better photos. These were taken from his Floating Hide.
Below is hide with a dabchick in the foreground.
A couple of things I think he has flippers on and paddles it that way.
Plus that is a rather expensive lenses poking out the front, even though my camera is very much cheaper I think I will remain on drylands.
Oh and the road is immediately behind him, only the odd person noted this strange object floating in the water, most just drove past.
