My next door neighbour's front gutter seems to have a blocked down-pipe. This probably doesn't sound particularly exciting, but it is. It means that the gutter is always full of water and hence full of birds having baths. Here's a New Holland Honey Eater fresh out of the bath.
I love watching them. About six pm is the best time and now that we have daylight savings I get to see lots of activity.
The next shot does, in fact, show the bird in the bath but it's a bit of a blur. I've included it as the backdrop is the view across the river, which is nice.
So it's nice seeing a bit of the wildlife having some fun.
In the interim I am still applying for jobs left right and centre. One day I'll get a job with a better outlook.
I took the risk by leaping down here. Now it's nearly two years since the move. I'm happy with everything bar the job, so that sounds like a success to me. The garden (one of the main reasons for coming here) is spectacularly gorgeous and I'm enjoying seeing birds sitting in bushes and trees I planted less than two years ago. What a privilege.
