This walk, from the 26th July, is mainly birds and bunnies. We did walk to the Caledonia Gully Reservoir today, but I took nearly 100 photos on our 7 km and I was too pooped to sort them.  This one is a shorter walk, barely a kilometre, close to home.

First, just over the footbridge, I checked a low lying wattle for bees. Saw a fly, first.

Not many bees, though. And it is more on the clover than on the wattle blossom.

While walking up Argyle Street, the sticky beak cockatoo checked on us.

Crossed Dairy Flat Road, and fluked this magpie launch.

A yellow-rumped thornbill…

Watched intently by this magpie. It snapped at the thornbill a few times, but missed.

And here’s the yellow rump on the yellow-rumped thornbill!

Galahs in a backyard gum tree…

Bunnies in a backyard. One stopped, the rest scarpered. That’s a Hills Hoist rotary clothesline in the background – an Australian invention.

Another magpie…

Another bunny…

It didn’t go far.

And that was it. We returned home without seeing anything more of particular interest.

Thanks for looking.  Take care.

    • Each time the thornbill got close, the magpie leaned towards it and snapped. It’s wings are out a little aggressively, but it didn’t actively chase the thornbill or follow it when it flew away.
