After crossing over the little bridge, (which I forgot to take a photo of because I was thinking, and looking for birds), the cicadas here were full-on loud.
Glimpses of something shining - cicadas, were everywhere.
Would've liked to have gotten a photo of them in flight over the channel, but they're so swift, and hard to pick up in the viewfinder; I tried.

Casuarina seeds pods, and as they mature those little pineapple-like bumps will open up to expel a seed
Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo feeding on a Banksia cone. Similarly, there will be seeds inside of these.
Silver Gull. Took these shots while having the cuppa break, and time slipped by very quickly.
