Was down at one of the local dams today, three Sunday's in a row sitting and meditating in the back of the Captiva (will be a shame to sell it, but C'est la guerre). Must have been quiet, as last two weeks, have had the wildlife come within 10 feet,and today'swasvideoworthy. A crow, being badgerred by a Willy Wagtail...
Clearly not on the scale of that which brings most Aussies to their knees, but fun to watch.

Had a call from the council last week...not to be worried by the sound of gunshots in the neighbourhood, they are shooting magpies. They annoy everything. I haven't woken to Quardle oodle ardle wardle doodle this week.

The wagtail is protecting her young.. A crow would make a meal of them. Crows in turn mob hawks, saw that the other day.. My local crow clan, aided by a flight of several dozen starlings coming in like a squadron fo fighters. grin2
