She added this postcard as well, with the explanation written on the back.
I alway thought Willy Wagtails only ate small insects, but this one was having a lovely time with a small skink, eventually ate the lot I think. Jock and I were standing very still, but a walker came from the other direction so the bird flew away, still with the skink in its beak. I was amazed how still Jock stayed.
This photo is a close up of the pink cassia - Cassia Javanica - Blogger won't load the other photos of the tree at present - perhaps later. The tree makes a beautiful show at this time of the year.
Now I need to run away and make a few more preparations for Christmas, which has now been moved to our house - too wet at our son's place. The forecast is for somewhere between 200 and 500 mls rain over the next three days - I hope they are wrong! We will have fun anyway and this may be better than the white stuff in the northern hemishpere. Have a wonderful Christmas wherever you are.
