Feed the Birds/ Tuppence a bag....

Feed the Birds ::
We saw some surprising new guests at our birdfeeder today- two galahs, and two huge beautiful Sulphur Crested Cockatoos.
Given that we're used to seeing the quiet chittery little Rosellas (like the brave little fellow attempting to land on top of the feeder there), I'm always startled at the large size and sheer noisy screeching of the cockies!

Tuppence ::
Meet our latest and final indoor inhabitant- a Flemish Giant/ New Zealand White cross rabbit.
At almost 11 weeks old, she's still a baby, but weighs a bit over a kilo and is rapidly putting on weight, changing in size and shape, and changing colour from a smokey grey to a beautiful speckled silver.

And from week to week, her favourite spot has been and is still right next to/ on the heating vent, warming her tummy...

It's a hard life for some.
