I have had a pair of YTBC appear each afternoon since last Thursday.
They are taking some interest in the Casuarinas on Coulter Drive.
Something I hadn't seen before was a magpie harassing them relentlessly.
Their lumbering flight meant that the magpie got quite a few pecks in
before the cockies decided to move on.

Also regret to inform you that a late fledged Crested Pigeon, which
arrived with downy breast at my feeder with parents on 18 March, appears
to have "disappeared".

Both Martin and I have been commenting on the (very positive)
made to the Folk Festival by the omnipresent B-cockies. Martin, with
acerbity, noted that that they are "relatively tuneful compared to a
of the bands". I am more mellow and merely observe that they complement
human music; they go especially well with a violin, I find.

Hope your long weekend has been rewarding.

best all
