A FEATHERED FAREWELL

Young Currawong bids me farewell.

Young Currawong bids me farewell.

Having visited each day for food, the scruffy youngster perches on a nearby branch and makes quiet little meep-meep noises, as I strap-up and leave.

 

THE GIANT STAIRCASE

The Giant Staircase

Just a tiny section of steps.

Over 50 flights containing approximately 900 steps. This only gets you up and down the actual cliff-face, to the top of the valley. About 28 times now I’ve ascended and descended this bitch of a staircase.

 

BLUE

Bower Bird nest.

Blue plastic tops, shoe-laces, straws and wrappers.

Forced to take a detour in my usual track because of some fallen tree I walked past this Bower Bird nest and figured it warranted a photo or two. Of course, the birds compulsively search everywhere for anything they can find that’s blue then fly it back and use it to line their nests.
