G'day all,
This is a snippet from an email from my love to me,
and what I am picking up on is how in one vein "El
helps whilst on the other hand it is the opposite?
What could have been good news with Lake Eyre and the
Banded Stilt there, is sadly now a tale of a feeding
frenzy? by the gulls? Oh well "God gives, and God
takes away"

I just think he created so much beauty with those
small balls of fluffy down it's so sad to lose so
many? anyway on to the USA and how "El Nino" seems to
be working up there.

My my quite the toasty weather here! about 23 degrees
your degrees? Very very nice for us and so early in
the year, we are all surprised as we normally have
another 10 weeks of rain! Lots of birdies out ... The
other day when I drove around to the bay, there were
about 150
Violet-Green swallows in the road, fluttering about
and getting little dablets of things off the roadway,
and grass-bits on the side. Such lovely little
persons! I have never seen so many all at once! in the
one location, very coastal Washington state.

Any Pacific coastal persons noticing an increase in
bird numbers?
