Fantastic set, although Mrs Ruppels Weaver doesn’t look impressed with Mr Ruppels Weaver, headache no doubt......

Another batch of excellent shots Ian, love the Rufous Bushchat (or whatever they call it these days) and the wacky coloured lizards!

Pic of the Sandpipers look like (I think) Marsh on the left and Wood on the right.
