    I saw a trailer for a wildlife programme to be shown this week on BBC2 and I believe that they are going to be featured in it.

    Wow--parakeets!

    I'd love to get a few here to take some pics of them!

    Boy have we got parakeets, lorikeets, cockatoos, galahs, rozellas, budgerigars and other specimens of the parrot family all over the place down here, all shapes and sizes, all colours.

    We had a whole bunch in the neighbours back yard adjoining ours yesterday. I must say they are a very screechy noisy lot, but entertaining

    Anyway, a week into our winter, here's Alby now.



    We're quite proud of him, seeing he is the only deciduous tree in the street and had no other tree to copy from, all others being native flora

    While I'm here, just a quick update on my little birch tree "Alby" as illustrated above. With only three days of winter left, this is what Alby looks like now, just a stick figure and not even a shadow of his former self

    But another month and he'll "twig" to the fact that it's well into Spring, and he'll start budding into those lovely pale green leaves.

    You caught them in flight! Nice going Richard.

    Last night after work, my husband and I had an evening cocktail outside. We enjoyed watching the bats take flight once the sun came down! Very cool!

    It took a few tries. They perch for a few seconds and move around so quickly. So I tried to video them and then took a screen shot of the video frame which shows them. I then cropped and enhanced the screen shot. This technique has potential.

    It's always so fun to edit homemade videos or trim up pics you've done! I actually got an app that became free on "appsgonefree" called, Snapstill. You take a video a pull stills from the video. It's pretty nifty!!
