Some Friendly Fauna and Other photos

The first overflow of Awoonga dam since it was raised in 2002.
On 11 December, Awoonga Dam, our local water supply, overflowed for the first time since it was raised in 2002. It holds about 770,000 megalitres.

In the last week we've been visited by a friendly frog and a dove. Here are some photos I thought I would share with you:

Black-faced cuckoo-shrike. First time I'd seen one in the wild!
Our cat Cinnamon has been very uncomfortable in the very hot weather recently (over 30 degrees Celsius) and discovered that she could watch television and keep cool at the same time in front of our fan!

And finally, Stanley our cat looked a bit embarrassed when he was having a bad hair day:
