hi all, woke up in the dark after a wet and windy night and started
working on the laptop which faces Crackenback, looked up just as it was
getting light and realised that the top third of the mountain is covered
in snow, only a dusting I think, but very beautiful and hopefully a sign
of more to come over the next few days. and more rain for the farmers
too i hope.

About 8 am went out on the balcony and what I think could only have been
a Peregrine falcon flew across below me and quite close and up to the
top of a gum tree, fast flight with economical wing beats, slate gray
back, didn't see the front, short tail - very falcon shape.

I'm wondering if the strong NW winds blew him/her in from somewhere?

cheers, Wendy
