Today’s birds

[Written yesterday, Thursday 3rd July]

This one is just for me.

I love bird watching. Anyone who has read anything on my blog or who knows me in person is familiar with this.

So these are my day’s birds!

I’m on holiday right now and it couldn’t be more perfect, more and more birds every day; the perfect recipe for happy days.

First up was my walk down to the Queenscliff Railway Station
