We really need some rain!

You know it's the end of the Dry season when the Royal Spoonbills start walking across the dam!  This morning there were eight of them, slowly wading across and swishing their enormous bills through the water.

Mangosteens at last!

One of our favourite fruits (actually nothing like a mango) and our one and only tree has not produced any fruit for years.  But a few months ago we had some huge overhanging trees pruned back and to our delight this afternoon we noticed heaps of tiny developing fruits so the tree must be much happier to have more light!
