Welcome to winter

Having finished the olives and ruby saltbush the local Silvereyes have now moved on to Pomegranate seeds.

The tree outside our kitchen window is receiving regular visits at the moment as the birds top up their fuel reserves.


Silvereye, Wyndham Street Newstead, 31st May 2015.


Spying another free meal!


One of the flock amongst the Pomegranates.


Expertly plucked!
