Well the Scarlets and Robins are returning in fits and
starts, bringing a splash of colour to the smoke bound
brown paddocks. The first Scarlet was spotted on the
26th March and the first Flames on the 19th April,
maybe a few early wusses who didn't like the onset of
the cold weather?

Other autumn arrivals are trickling through, Grey
Fantails and a Pallid Cuckoo, as well as our first
Cisticolas in the reveg. Diaomnd Firetails have taken
up residence in the garden and veggie patch, as have a
couple of Hooded Robins who act like European Robins
keeping an eye out as the veggie patch is planted with
winter brassicas.

An odd visitor is a budgie which is feeding in the
garden; we usually see them in summer,so goodness
knows what this one thinks it is up to. It doesn't
seem to be interested in us; maybe it has seen the
signs of climate change and is heading south to take
