Bye Bye Blackbird - Joe Cocker

Another dank start to the day but like most others of recent times,
out came the sun and dried up all the rain
so Incy Wincy climbed up the spout again.
The large shape flying out of the rain cloud manifested itself as a
GREY HERON
which settled briefly in  the
Harbins Fir Tree,
while all that were found in the Moth Traps were
YELLOW DUNG FLIES
and this
WHITE-LIPPED SNAIL
Things turned very much for the better on arrival at the
Irrigation Pond

where a most obliging

was found feeding

over-egg the custard but at no extra cost!
What followed was considered far more unusual
as surely all
video
REPTILES

including this

SMOOTH SNAKE
should be in hibernation by now?
Also along the way were found
 WOOD STITCHWORT
PLEUROTUS CORNUCOPIAE
 STINKING MAYWEED
PHOLIOTA AURIVELLA
and we ended our day watching a local
BLACKBIRD
