Limeburners Point

Yesterday I had an appointment in Geelong, Victoria. On arrival I found I had about an hour to spare, and I decided to take a look at Limeburners Point, a popular fishing and boat launching spot not far out of the CBD.

There were plenty of the usual suspects (Silver Gulls), but then I noticed some Pacific Gulls. They were using the light towers as roosts.

I then walked from the car park out onto the breakwater, where I was able to capture the images below.

On the bay side of the breakwater there were a pair of Great Crested Grebes and a Little Black Cormorant diving in search of food. The Grebes were a bit far out for a good picture but I managed a record shot, which is below.

Then, as I was returning to my car I spotted a pair of Masked Lapwings.

All in all, I feel I had a productive hour.
