Ospreys and Caspian Terns at Leeman, Western Australia 23/09/12

Leeman, Western Australia.  We had a short stop at the picturesque seaside town of Leeman while travelling.  The area is really lovely with the old Snag Island Pier still intact (see below) and a pair of Ospreys Perched on a man-made Nesting Pole overlooking the Water.  We saw a Caspian Tern for the first time here, and my how much larger they are than the Crested Terns we had been seeing!  J.G.

    1. Thanks John, we were lucky as they posed quite well - keeping still allowing us a few photos! They are stunning birds and we did see one fly off and scoop up a fish from the ocean, it moved so quickly! This was a beautiful spot to visit.
