Turns out these two gulls were only pretending to be one-legged. After taking this photo they both revealed their other leg and proceeded to have a scrap. (Both vying for the title of the Hopalong Cassidy Cup?)

Every day this week as I’ve walked around the inlet, I’ve seen spoonbills. Going by their keen, fast and furious sifting and scooping, there’s something really tasty in the water

This past week I have been making the most of the pleasant spring weather.

No need to venture far. The backyard is far enough. The city merely gazed at from over the water between it and the eastern suburbs.
