Hi all,

It's a glorious day in Katoomba and throughout the morning I have been
watching large numbers of needletails surfing the air currents low
overhead. Then, up from the gully below, a Little Eagle appeared - while
not as exciting as the Square-tailed Kite which flew over a couple of weeks
ago, nevertheless a very nice bird to see at close range from the home
office window. It circled higher and higher until it was just a speck, then
disappeared to the north-east, the same way the STK went.

This time of year always brings surprises.
