This morning we woke up to one of those perfect and beautiful Autumn days although it is absolutely freezing after the light frost over night. I spotted this Ibis in the paddock next to the house and I fully expected it to fly away as soon as I walked out the door with my camera. He must have been enjoying the warm sun too much to be bothered and stood there for a while letting me take some photos.
Eventually he turned and gave me a long look as if he was wondering what on earth I was doing.
Then turned and quietly walked away.
Not sure what sort of Moth it is but I don't think I have ever seen one like it here before.
There are hundreds of Cockatoos flying over early every morning to a farm just up the road. They have been sowing seed and the cockatoos are enjoying the easy meals. The paddock has been white with them for a few days now. As the cooler weather starts to arrive a lot of the birds I have watched in my garden over the summer have disappeared, hopefully to somewhere a lot warmer than here.
