There've Been Some Changes Made.
In case I've been missed, I've been rebuilding my web site for the first time in 6 years. They claim it's simpler, but I think I must be as well, as I'm still finding things I've overlooked. One thing is that the pictures associated with the blog are no linger linked. I fixed the last two and may try to do the rest just as a record, but it looks rather strange!
This last few days the weather has been bright and sunny, such a welcome relief from the previous couple of weeks. Not that we had any thing like the dramas that Sydney and Newcastle copped. Good friends the Watson's took last week for a Sydney/Blue mountains break and almost got washed away.
Meanwhile on the photography front the weather has made for some interesting pictures on the lake and the small birds have been quite co-operative as well. There's an ongoing fight between the magpies, currawongs and wattle birds over territory. There doesn't seem to be any winners in this fight, more of a stand-off. I've also noticed a pair of yellow faced Honey-eaters that I've not seen here before. I haven't captured any pictures of them, but I'm hoping they may nest nearby.
They would show up regularly at Minto but I think the warming trend is moving many species further south. I see regular reports in the local papers of semi tropical fish being caught locally and since when did Sydney have cyclones.
This young eastern spinebill decided that he's had enough of the motor drive clatter and it was time to leave. It just goes to show that with this sort of subject it pays to keep your finger on the button just that little bit longer.
There is a new exhibition on at Artspace shop 7 upstairs at Bermagui Co-op building which opened very successfully last night. It's on until the 27th May and is well worth a look. it's titled "Stories, a visual and literary feast". The gallery is open Wednesday to Monday from 10.30 to 3.30. Perhaps I'll see you there. Lastly the "Rust in the blood exhibition has now closed. I'm told by all concerned that it was a great success. What next I Wonder?
That's all for today. More soon - Peter
