From FNQ Photographers Club meeting 17 June 2017
The Palm Cove pier has a resident osprey that is known locally as Scruffy. He/she steals fish from the local fishermen, and is often left treats which he then devours up on one of the light towers. He does tend to make a mess.

A cold start to a glorious winter’s day in Cairns.
The Barron River estuary at Machans Beach on a low tide allows you to walk hundreds of metres out across tidal flats. Sunsets can be spectacular.
The first photograph shows Yorkeys Knob at the left, Double Island and Haycock Island (Scout Hat) off Palm Cove and Mount Sorrow at Cape Tribulation in the distant background.
I have added several panorama images of Cairns and surrounding. These are available to view and buy here in two sizes, or email me for full size details.
