While the weather here is cold enough to keep the wood fire burning, it doesn’t seem to have stopped the birds from getting into the swing of Spring.   When I walked around our boundary fence yesterday, I could hear baby magpies, and was swooped by adult magpies. From the safety of the house, I could see the galahs checking out nesting hollows, and the Wood Ducks introduced their brood of 11 ducklings to the grassy slope  leading from the house to the dam.
