Walking in Shepherds Hill Recreation Park on August 29th, I discovered someone had left a plastic bat hanging on a tree.
It’s actually very near where I once hid an ornamental dragon I didn’t need anymore, because it amused me to imagine someone stumbling upon it amidst the trees and wondering how it got there. Also I was curious to see how long it would take before it disappeared (answer: between one and two weeks). For all I know, the bat might have been put there by the same person who took my dragon (though my preferred hypothesis is that the latter was accepted by the resident fairies).
The following day I went for two more walks in the park, and took lots of photographs of birds. It was an outstanding day for that, I guess because the birds were nesting and therefore more interested in that than in flying away. Below are pictures of parrots, galahs, lorikeets and rosellas.
On my way home I recorded a video, which is embedded at the end of this post. There are no birds in the video, but you can hear them.
Here is the last time I posted photographs from Shepherds Hill Recreation Park (which happens to be a very short walk from my home).
(As for my recent difficulty uploading photographs, it is not yet solved, but I discovered I was able to upload them using a different browser.)
