Little Egrets

Variable sun and cloud, 8°, light to mod WNW.

Much better weather today after the week ends wind, rain, snow and sleet.

2 Little Egret inadvertently flushed from the brook on the way out to Lollingdon. They landed briefly in an adjacent field before flying off east.

15 minutes later I found 2 more distantly at the back end of a flooded filed, thinking how did they get in front of me without me seeing them?

An hour plus later I was coming off the hill when I noticed 4 Little Egret flying west about a kilometre from me and they landed in a flood area in one of the fields. I made my way down and across the fields but by the time I arrived they had moved on.

The flooded field out at Lollingdon hosted a flock of approx. 200 Lapwing today, with c80 Black-headed Gull and 40’ish Lesser Blackback Gull.

Lots of thrushes still around scattered throughout the area and a Kingfisher also noted, both Kestrel and Sparrowhawk seen near the Millennium Wood.

Mammals: Roe Deer.


Some Winter Aconites and Snowdrops in flower now.

Happiness is eating your ice-cream before it melts!



How long does it take for an ice-cream to melt on a 34C/92% humidity day? From recent experience.. about 20 seconds! It's a race against time not lose a drop of my favourite French vanilla gelato from Whisk Creamery in Northbridge. The mural is by Darren Hutchens who specializes in large scale public artworks and community based art projects. If you click the artist link I'm sure you will recognize some of his colourful characters that have appeared here on the blog. The $100 question.. is it ever too cold to eat ice-cream? I don't think so, how about you? Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe..

Wow!

Who would have thought Sunday’s sunset could be more epic than Saturday’s? Heading up to Lake Wendouree I could tell the clouds were well placed for something special. As you know I’ve taken a million sunsets at the Lake so it’s always a challenge to find a new take on it. As I was driving around the lake I noticed there were quite a few photographers all set up for the action looking out to the west across the Lake. From near the Yacht Club I could see that something was happening out to the east away from the actual sunset and quickly got myself airborne for this amazing view. The rainbow over Mt Warrenheip was the extra bonus! The second image shows the actual sunset out to the west...not too bad, either!
The third image here is from the brief but intense sunset on Saturday evening.

Sometimes a look can appear understated from afar, but when you move in closer, it’s apparent that a plethora of details exist. This fashion blogger is the queen of effortless statements. In a recent look posted to Instagram, she opted for a black puffer jacket layered of a grey chunky sweater. Instead of denim, she went with a cropped leather trouser and added neutral sneakers for the ultimate elevated winter wear.
