I never ceased to be amazed at the variety of life on our small country road. This morning the bird life I encountered on my walk was wonderful; plovers, an Australian hawk, kingfisher, goldfinch, fantails and a peacock! The peacock is the latest addition to a menagerie that is growing in the field next to the stream. It includes, ducks, sheep, very large chickens and a ginger pig, the latter obviously added to be the "spice of life". So, here are a few shots from my 2km + walk down the street this morning.
