At last, a half-way reasonable Kingfisher photo! And as the satellite dish decides to work when it's fine - and as more rain is on the way! - I'll grab this chance to upload a photo. It's still not a brilliant shot as I really had to zoom in to the top of the tree but at least you can see the colours and especially the very long thin white tail. They are constantly flying back and forth outside the window but take off at the slightest noise or movement.
Peter's really looking forward to getting his laptop back! The desktop is really falling to pieces now - even the mouse curled up and died today! So with our friend Barry's advice we have ordered a new system from Brisbane which hopefully should arrive by courier within the next week or two. Hoping too that by then the techs will have repaired the satellite dish which is currently swathed in Cling-wrap trying to protect the vulnerable bits from heavy rain!
