    At Byron Bay. Pic isn't that great because I had to be quick while the mum was telling me off ... trying to protect her four chicks. Suppose I'll just have to find another way in and out of my campsite IMG_20190930_173122_280.jpg

    Fascinating cloud formation this morning!
    Google tells me they’re Mammatus clouds... rather interesting if you choose to look it up, particularly the Latin meaning of the word.

    It rained today. The pink and grey raptors soaked it up.

    Yes, our juvenile magpies are confused about this liquid sunshine.
    (They haven’t seen rain since they hatched....)
    Quite a comedic display of grooming....but continuing to get saturated.
    Sorry, no pics.
    Cheers,

    Got up early today and went for a brisk walk/run out to Hugh’s Dale Waterfall.

    Had it all to ourselves.

    So refreshing after a very humid trip out
