Anyone for a bird bath?
Not only was the thrush sitting there but it was hopping over and under and every which way to take advantage of the gentle shower the sprinkler provided.
Generally speaking the land in the Taupo area is becoming very dry and so the birds seem to be appreciating any water supply that can be found.
Linda took a panoramic shot of the river below and wrote about it on her blog the other day and you can see how dry the land has become on both sides of the river.
This morning we have gentle drizzle. First rain we have had in a while. It is supposed become a lot heavier and we hope this will be the case. It would be really nice to see the land return to green once more.
