Hello All,

Smokey autumn has been alleviated by the arrival of
Flame and Scarlet Robins to add a splash of colour to
the brown paddocks. The Scarlet was particularly
early, 26th March and the Flames on the 19th April,
again quite early, possibly a few wusses who couldn't
handle the dropping temperatures in the hills?

Other highlights for us are the Diamond Firetails and
pair of Hooded Robins hanging around the veggie patch,
the Hoodies are almost acting like the English Robins,
keeping an eye out for bugs being dug up as we plant
our winter brassicas. Plenty of Jackie Winters, Grey
Fantails are trickling in, and bizarrely, a budgie
feeding in the garden. An odd sight at this time of
year, it doesn't seem to be interested in us which
begs the question of what it thinks it's doing around
these parts? They are reasonably regular in the
summer, but not autumn.


Debbie and Julian
