What’s for breakfast?

I can’t begin to speculate what this Sulphur-crested Cockatoo is sinking his beak into…

But I can vouch that he has chosen a delightful picnic spot, right beside the river.

Given that this is one of the favourite haunts of his species, I’m sure that he is quite content with his present life.

I see you…

Just for a moment, this beautiful Rainbow Lorikeet takes his attention from the task at hand – building a nest.

These rank second only to Sulphur-crested Cockatoos are the most often-seen species of parrot in our local park.

I’m yet to see any babies, and probably never will, but nevertheless it’s wonderful to know that these brilliantly-coloured birds are planning to increase the size of their family.

Proud, strong and handsome, a Kookaburra perches on a tree in our local park. Luckily for all, it’s a reserve devoted to native vegetation, birds, reptiles and so on. The perfect home for our iconic, featured friend.

Sharing Good News…

Sharing good news…

On Saturday 7th September 2015, Ron and I attended the awards ceremony at Hurstville City Library (a major centre in suburban Sydney, Australia).

As one who had been short-listed, I admit to being a trifle nervous as the results were about to be announced.

So it was with much delight that I learned that my entry entitled ‘More Than a Mere Bagatelle’- a short story about a child, her family, and a piano – had been awarded a Second Prize in its section.

Even better than the ‘Highly Commended’ that ‘The One That Got Away’ earned in the previous year’s competition…

Are my literary fortunes on the rise?

Here’s the link to my photos

Strutting His Stuff

What a handsome bird am I…

I get the feeling that this male Chestnut Teal has that in mind as he struts boldly along the shore.

Oh, and apologies for my recent absence.

They’re Out! Flannel Flowers by the River!

18 Oct

I love to see the Flannel Flowers. Right now they’re in flower, and it’s just the beginning of their season. They’re fussy about where they’ll grow, but fortunately for me they have chosen spots by the river and near the road that we drive along to get to the water. Their simple, daisy-like flowers hold a special charm.

For the photo of these charming plants, please visit my other blog.
