Here in Yungaburra on the Atherton Tablelands it feels like summer has ended without a wet season. Cool nights, ugg boots in the morning and a sleeveless pullover until 9 am. The days are warm. Dusky Woodswallows are around along with increasing numbers of raptors. Flocks of Currawongs, Bee-eaters and King parrots are building, all signs of winter approaching.
BUT there was a Black Butcherbird in my garden this morning. This is an occasional summer visitor from the coast. A juvenile Koel was seen the day before yesterday.
