A few days ago we thought we would have a great harvest of cherry plums from the tree by our back door. There would be enough to fill the fruit bowl and maybe even to make cherry plum jam as well.
But then the rainbow lorrikeets arrived and took at least one bite out of every last plum!
They were not the least bit of scared of people and didn’t mind me filming their feast. Unfortunately the video clip is too large to upload to the blog so I will endeavour to put it on my website.
The Twitter birds were thrilled to watch their friends and relations and now they are bringing barrowloads of videos for Sprite to sort!
