I found this image here so hope it is ok to use it.
We caught sight of the big dolphin's fin as we came over the ridge and our first thought was "shark". We are all a bit skittish about sharks at the moment since a swimmer was taken, possibly by a great white, off Cottesloe Beach a couple of days ago. He was having his early morning swim. His bathers have been found but no sign of his body.
On the walk home we heard the bronze-wing doves, they are still making their plaintive, haunting noise to attract a mate. The male sits up on a power pole and you can easily see how his chest puffs up as he takes in the air to coo it out. It seems they are territorial and every second power pole has a resident dove.
This morning, I was walking with the LBD - Roland went fishing at some unearthly hour - and I saw a crested pigeon sitting on a branch.
This is the link to where I found the photo
Such a funny little top-knot!
The pink and grey galahs and the maggies are often in the Norfolk Pine having a look!
Look at them discussing my style!
