GONE FISHING

Posted in fremantle by freoview on August 6, 2014

fishing

The herons at Fremantle harbour have decided that hunting for food is old-school and that it is better to go to the supermarket of anglers, who fish on the wharf at Victoria Quay. The water birds feel quite at ease with people and sit close by in the hope to get a feed.

WILDLIFE FEAST IN FREMANTLE PORT

Posted in fremantle, fremantle port by freoview on August 4, 2014

Herrons

It was a bit of a wildlife feast in Fremantle harbour on yesterday’s glorious Sunday. While dolphins excited the tourists several herons were busy trying to steal fish from the many anglers.

There are 64 recognised species of the lovely water bird, some are called egrets or bitterns. Keep an eye out for them and the dolphins!

BEAUTIFUL BIRDS OF FREMANTLE

Posted in fremantle by freoview on June 16, 2014

Galah

The noisy pink galah cockatoos are back in Fremantle in big numbers and were having a lot of fun around Bathers Beach and the Espalanade on Sunday, with many eating on the railway track. This one did not like it when I got too close to take a photo, but it makes for a nice picture.

FUNKY J SHED ART ATTRACTS BIRDS

Posted in art, fremantle by freoview on March 20, 2014

Those funky and creative J Shed artists at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach are helping to beautify the area and looking after the environment at the same time. The lawn of the A Class reserve is recovering after a lot of TLC, and Janet Nixon is attracting birds in the Rottnest Island pines with colourful birds nests and water baths. The City has also done a bit with colourful benches and tables for all to enjoy and that will be extended to the headland near the Round House soon, where seating is long overdue.

KIDOGO SEAGULL SHOW WORTH A VISIT

Posted in fremantle, photography by freoview on March 7, 2014

I went to the opening of the photo exhibition The Maligned Seagull by Fremantle photographer Hank Kordas at Kidogo Arthouse on Bathers Beach yesterday and was impressed with the delightful gentle show in soft sepia tones. It is open till March 12, so go and have a look if you are down that way, or do it while visiting the Sunset Markets on Saturday.

The seaweed at Fremantle Bathers Beach is a big attraction for the seagulls, who appear to enjoy dining out on Japanese and Korean cuisine.

FREO’S SHITTY MALL

Posted in fremantle by freoview on January 3, 2013

The High Street mall in Fremantle is a very busy place where many people sit and watch the passing parade, read the local newspapers or have a bite to eat, so what a disgrace to see this bench full with bird shit on Wednesday morning. One would assume that the cleaning of public seats is a daily task each morning to make sure people don’t soil their clothes. Maybe the mall traders could also show more pride and check out the benches. It only takes a minute or two to clean them.

NATURE’S SIMPLE BEAUTY

Posted in fremantle by freoview on December 11, 2012

It does not take much to create beauty. A stunning blue sky over Fremantle and a large flock of cockatoos is all that was needed for this photo.
