This afternoon we took a Yarra bank stroll at Warringal Park,
Heidelburg- not only was the first Silver wattle coming into bloom but
we saw Magpies carrying nest material to a well-built nest in a cedar.

This evening as I type this in I can hear a Song-Thrush singing at 6 pm,
though the light has almost gone. Nice to know some have survived the
drought. I am certain that their numbers have been locally reduced over
the last few years.
