    How funny Joe, I was in Rawson Street for a wee while, just off Anderson Park. Know that corner of Sydney well.

    gorgeous birds Sophie and Nora... heard something unusual singing today, for the first time, but couldn't see what it was.

    our local beach this evening.

    Another great shot Julie.

    Over a very busy week, these threads have been wonderful to watch.

    I feel I should contribute more, but you all seem to be doing a wonderful job.

    Cheers.

    Don't worry Jackson, you'll be raring to go when you get the chance!

    Looking lovely, that beach, here's Bondi in real B&W from some years ago....

    Bondi filesaver...

    Whoops, here it is…

    ...from outside The Astra hotel (or thereabouts)?
    I hear it may now be an old folks home...
    it was definitely a 'day care centre'
    of sorts in the '80s!

  • Lilith __,

    This might be a good place to give a shout-out to Chch nature-photographer Jonathan Harrod, whose photos of birds in Travis Wetland I think are particularly wonderful.

    Whilst we are on birds and nothing to do with Sydney ;) This bugger woke me this morning.

    You can faintly see dinner if you look really really hard.

    My soundtrack doesn't involve much birdsong at the moment, but this well-digging machine with its rhythmic whir-punch-clank. It's not loud, and oddly comforting...

    And that blue sky was so nice to see... Beijing dawned grey, murky, filthy and stinkingly humid, but when we crossed over the mountains we could see clear across the basin.

    Unfortunately I've got paperwork to catch up on...

    You can feel the warmth in there. Lovely.

    What I thought was the appropriate time to photograph turned out to be time for the kids to bed down for the night and the most majestic shot from outside was not to be. They turned the bloody lights out. Still, it felt special to see it in full glory.

    Yeah, even the blues are glowing. Nice shots, Sofie.

    Bad storm coming, better run to the top of the mountain. Or, perhaps, ignore Mr Garrett and run inside.

    (I've taken photos from this exact angle so many times.... I need to get out more)

    E Chris – that upper bird looks almost exactly like one of our kites! (the human-made kind.)

    Snap! This one was flying low (with a mate). They tend to be just having fun, flying up over the west ridge only to dip back down and perform circles.
