Not quite a home bird
At Lake Seppings was this Eurasian Coot, would have made me feel right at home, except this is the Australian subspecies LOL.

Think they look good wherever they are - shame he's got his remarkable feet hidden from view.

Sorry I've not been around too much, I was a finger-breadth away from going into hospital tomorrow, but cancelled yesterday, so I've been catching up on what I should have done over the weekend instead of preparing for that. Instead I've to go to a clinic on Monday and Tuesday and not until the surgeon sees the results from that will he decide whether to call me in. I am at the top of the list once the decision has been made. I do hope it goes ahead and hopefully gets me out of the pain, or falling asleep due to the painkillers!
