Lorikeets and elms

Musk Lorikeets have been indulging on the masses of elm seeds currently available on the trees in our street. A little wind through the branches makes it look like it’s snowing at the moment – the ‘muskies’ have been keen to make the most of this short window of opportunity.

  1. Do you know this week is bird watching week? People are being asked to count what they see in their backyard. There is an App (free I think) available to help with identification. Please let everyone know; can’t be a bad thing to encourage twitching. Cheers Moira
