Bird life delights

Well it’s been a quiet time in virtual-blog-land for me lately as the real world has taken over.

This morning on the way into work I saw a family of eight (yes, 8!) curlews hanging out near the carpark. This is a pretty rare sight but one I also saw a week or two ago when they were paddling in the flooded gutters after the rain.

Then this afternoon, I spied three rainbow bee eaters bathing in the lake -the sun catching their exquisite turquoise & gold feathers. After each dip they’d fly back to the branch and click their beaks against the branch…strange. Soon after a kingfisher arrived to share the fun. Fantastic end to the working day!
