Here's three events that have taken place on the golf course in the last couple of days...
There was a tree full of musks kicking up a considerable din in the rain on Monday. When I went to investigate I found they were relishing the precipitation and having a right old spring clean of the plumage. The light was terrible, but if you click and open this image, you'll see what I mean.
Gang Gang Cockatoos:
A pair of gang-gangs were feasting in a Bushy Yate. While the female lacks the striking flame coloured crest of the male, I love the tan barring on her belly. Gang-gangs seem to always cooperate for the camera.
Darter:This guy has been about for a week or so now. The stump he is standing on is in a direct line between the 18th tee and green. If you fluff your tee shot the ball will invariably end up in the water near the stump. I haven't seen the bird dodge any mishit shots yet, but I'm guessing he's seen a few splashes. He has a mechanical clicking alarm note that sounds a bit like 'tch tch'. (Quite appropriate for some of my tee shots).
