Happy New Year everyone!

One amusing incidence which I witnessed last week, on the way down on the s NSW coast was this: near Cooma a Black Falcon was sweeping supersonically across a hillside, aided by very strong winds, and a local Magpie, with obvious mobbing intent, was flying as fast as it could to catch up, but no matter how hard it flapped it was left way behind.
