In my Garden yesterday.

The apple tree in our backyard is such a busy place this time of year. Parrots, sparrows, finches, wattle birds, magpies and cockatoos are frequent visitors to this one tree.
And it's not only the birds that come looking for the apples. Both the dogs love apples and are quite often found sitting up the yard chewing on one.
Mudlarks are coming into the garden as well. It has been such a long time since we have seen any around here.  There are so many birds in our garden Wrens. Tree Climbers, Wagtails, Dollar Birds, Robins, Galahs, Kookaburras, Currawongs,Ducks and even rare visits from a Kingfisher

It's not only the birds that enjoy the garden at our house. This little trio are more than likely on the trail of the poor little lizards.
One day I'm sure these two will be best mates?????
For now Cato tolerates Fred and gives him a swipe every now and then just to let him know who's Boss.
