Sad news this morning... Neddy Seagoon, Sir Cumference is gone. Thank
you, Harry, for brightening up our lives with your wit and song.

The first cool morning of the year at Roma. Our summer has been very
ordinary as far as rain goes: the landscape here is already sere. A
visit to the rapidly drying pools at the sewage works produced five
Black-necked Storks (an unprecedented number) and a first year
White-bellied Sea-eagle, as well as a few Sharp-tailed and Marsh
Sandpipers, stopping by on their way north I guess.

The country west of Charleville is dry too, a very patchy summer  in SW
Qld. Perhaps we'll be seeing  inland birds like Budgerigars and Diamond
Doves at Roma this year.
