The end of winter

It feels like it’s been a cold winter – the warmth of early spring is just around the corner. I’m looking forward to the arrival of woodswallows, rainbow birds and a kingfisher or two along the Loddon.

In the meantime, here is a selection of images from yesterday, to mark the change of season.

Crimson Rosellas are nesting in hollows in our local elms at the moment.

Horsfield’s Bronze-cuckoos have been calling enthusiastically over the past week … even in the middle of the night.

  1. Excellent photo’s Geoff, we are finding Fantail Cuckoo’s common this year but no Horsfield’s seen so far.
