A BUSH WALK 5 MINUTES FROM HOME

Hi everyone too nice too be indoors
I had Just dropped off Kayne and Hayden (Grandsons)to have a game
of golf ,As I had Maddison ( granddaughter) with me and camera
in hand, we set off on a lovely walk along a bush track leading to the
Murray river.
Australian Corellas on the path Corella's take flight as we get closer
couldnt resist taking a photo of this lovely Redgum
Maddison pointing to were two Corellas flew out from there nest
rusted piece of old machinary


Little Corellas feed in large noisy flocks. The birds feed mainly on the ground, and have to drink on a daily basis. The most common foods are grains and grass seeds,

Beautiful pictures and so strange to me ! The vegetation is completely different here in Northern Europe.

When I opened your blog I thought Oh god another woman blogging about Bush. I hadn't seen the "a" ! and only red, "Bush walks 5 min from home". !

Fantastic pics and another world! Love the music on your blog too- made me smile this morning. :)
The photos on my blog were taken beside the Clyde river in Argyll. There are much nicer places to sit by the water here but that was an unplanned stop- but a nice relaxing one anyway.
Glad you enjoyed your walk- l will be sure to drop by again.
Bests and G-day to you!

Hi Mum, Its great to see you walking. Perfect exercise for the back, also the photo's show how wonderful the scenery is around your neck of the woods.

and aren't those Corellas noisy!. If you have ever been in Glenelg (Gold Coast) around dusk, the sound is the most amazing thing to hear, thousands of birds screeching at the top of their ? lungs...

great pics.. thanks
