This afternoon, while collecting the washing from the line ... at 5.30pm, I
was startled to discover a crash to the ground right next to me ... no more
than 5 metres away ... a kookaburra ... and next to it, probably on top in
flight ... a grey goshawk. They were startled by me ... the kookaburra took
that opportunity to get the hell out of there ... the goshawk flew into the
tree beside me ... to stay for more than the time I needed to identify ...
grey phase, beautiful.
all this in Engadine ... my backyard is one street away from the bushland of
the Woronora valley but this was special ...By the way, Engadine is in the
southern suburbs of Sydney! Near to Royal National park.
