Have been "off the blogging grid" for the past 2 weeks due to a delightful horse & house-sit commitment in the Adelaide Hills. It was a beautifully peaceful semi-rural 20 acre property within a half-hour's drive of the Barossa Valley and the birdlife an absolute treat.
Following are some images captured during the stay which I hope will give you
"a taste" of the environment . . . .
A pretty New Holland Honeyeater
I haven't yet identified this one, but it was singing so beautifully !
Early morning mist across the countryside
A neighbour's horse grazing
One of two horses to be fed
..... and the other
An inquisitive, alert rabbit
.... together with other members of its family!
A Grey Fantail shaking off after a bird bath
Here it is again with another (as yet) unidentified feathered friend
and here, caught mid-air
a creative piece of work
Let the sun shine !
A Silvereye sharing the bath with its neighbours
one of many Red-browed Firetails who visited each morning
The shape of this was fascinating - I wondered whether it was a dead Sunflower?
