The annoyng and the beautiful

This morning saw me bashing around in the currant patch, encouraging blackbirds to leave - in all, seven!  They had made holes in the netting on the far side - out of sight of humans who might stop them.  The currants are fruiting beautifully - and now the blackbirds are throwing themselves at the netting in the hope that it will sag sufficiently for them to be in reach of the rich red fruit.

And before that I was watching two gorgeous Nankeen Kestrels sitting on the big orchard netting - they had their eyes on the New Holland Honeyeater living in the netting.  Unfortunately, not just one NHHE - somehow a second has got in.
