Country Diary for week ending 29th July

It was a wet and windy week with over 70mm of rain taking us up to 150mm for the month of July which is slightly above average.  The east of the property is under water for the first time in 4 years.

I got my first pictures of a family of red-tailed black cockatoos and a large flock of ibis, and some more pictures of a family of kangaroos.

We made good progress with the new oat paddock with the neighbour ploughing it for us.   I was pleased to see the richness of the soil and almost wept with joy that there were almost no rocks to pick up.

I am continuing my love affair with the sunrise, catching a beautiful silver sun and also caught my first sun setting over the horizon.

Just click on any of the pictures for the full stories.
