Delights of Manly

Unusual sightings at Manly beach yesterday were 6 Yellow-tailed Black-Cockatoos flying along the beach in amongst the pines heading to North Head. Screeching all along the way. A 100 % sign for more big rain to come. A Sooty Oystercatcher gave alarm calls while flying over the shoreline. Bandicoots and possums behaved as if it is spring. Micro-bats raced from beach light to beach light. Frogs on North Head gave a concert into the clear night sky that would have delighted Steve Reich.
