Beautiful photos Carole - that daisy field looks like it would be pure bliss to spend some quiet moments in! If you're not completely sold on that bird, maybe check out the Thornbills? It looks tiny! I've never seen a Jacky Winter though. I'd have such a headache from little brown outback birds! :)
Nice to see you still have a bit of colour about the countryside Carole.
a cool memorial structure. :) i like the proliferation of paper daisies.
Hi Carole Now I have been looking at the first bird which you thought might be a Jacky Winter. I have looked up by books and nowhere can I find one with that brown on it, so could it be a Southern Whiteface? I have never seen one myself. Would love to know what you think.
Beautiful places to see, Carole! Your photos make me feel like I'm right there enjoying it now! Thank you!!!Hugs, Laura
I love the pretty wildflowers. Lovely shots, Carole!
It's nice to see that you've got some summer on your blog ;-)Best regards from the Netherlands, dzjiedzjee.blogspot.com
Wonderful to see all the wild flowers!!!Jan
Thanks Margaret for your suggestion on the bird ID - you may be right, but I'm more inclined to go along with Christian, that it might be one of the Thornbills. Perhaps the inland, or possibly the Chestnut-rumped. I'm thinking moreso the Inland Thornbill. Will report when I have a positive ID on it. It's nice to have more hats in the ring to work with; thanks to you both
And there was me thinking Tottenham was a place in London UK with a Hotspur soccer team. Love the flower shots too with their interesting names and I always wonder about how animals and plants aquired their names - not laways obvious.
Beautiful countryside, and the bird, really nice.
Wonderful photos of this area with the plants and birds. So beautiful !
A great post, thank you Carole. The wild flowers are so pretty and I enjoyed the little bird also.
This looks as if it would be a lovely place to visit, and your flower shots are beautiful. I am already missing wildflower fields in Texas with fall passing by to winter! Is this very far from your home??such fun coming to this spot for the birding experience. I was just reading a comment you made on another blog about one living close to alot of donkeys. Such an interesting experience to hear them braying every day. I had never heard this before!
I love seeing the wildflowers, which are so different from the ones here in Canada. ;))
Jeanne: Tottenham is located 540 klms nor-west (inland) from where I live on the east coast.
maybe a positive ID on the mystery bird; one of my birding friends thinks it to be the Chestnut-rumped Thornbill
