Three degrees (the temperature, not the pop group) on verandah at midnight last and the lone fan-tailed cuckoo still calling for a mate. Had some severe weather in the
form of gales, hail and thunderstorms but no real harm done, just the usual round of pick-up-sticks required. Meanwhile this magpie was involved in a big chase and sat a while to cool off.
The strong winds dry out the bird baths fairly quickly. A distant shot of a Rosella
having a lie down in water - and a well-washed New Holland Honeyeater.
