The Red Backed Fairy Wren is the smallest of all the Australian fairy-wrens. Here on Bribie
Island we have two varieties of wrens, the other is the Variegated wren, of which its claim to fame is that it is the most common of all the Australian fairy-wrens. Taken at Banksia Beach. David Simpson.

A sure sign that Spring is on the way. Yesterday afternoon (Monday) at the Kakadu High
Tide Roost at the top of the tide we had 400+ Eastern Curlews. These birds which are
now classified as critically endangered use Pumistone passage as a Summer stopover to
rejuvenate after their breeding cycle. These Curlews are the forerunner of more birds to
come, the smaller birds because of their size take longer to arrive, having to stop more.
