Tuesday 20 October
This week for various reasons, I was the only Gaiter Girl with the time to walk. With camera in hand I set forth.
It was a fabulous morning for walking. Birds of all sizes and breeds were also enjoying, or trying to enjoy, the beauty of the dawn. Many tranquil moments were shattered by the onset of territorial wars. It seems it's not easy to stake your claim in the bird world. The strangest moment took place in the driveway of a home. I looked up and noticed a kookaburra sitting between two magpies. They appeared to be chatting, when suddenly the kookaburra took off with a small snake in it's beak. The magpies gave frantic chase. It all happened too quickly for any photo.
There was noone on the golf course, so my walk initially took me around the ponds.
