No camera; no breeding happening yet.

Since Winter began to end this year I began observing the nesting behaviour of the Masked Lapwings and Australian Magpies, and for the passed 9 weeks I have not seen any newborn birds. The Masked Lapwings, Australian Magpies and Eastern Rosellas in my area went through the process of nesting, laid eggs, but nothing hatched. Two Masked Lapwing chicks have been spotted during October but they were dead. We have had an exceptionally hot Winter/Spring which may have actually cooked the eggs. That and with very little rain that we've had in the last 12 months is a good indication for something but what I don't know.

On top of all of that my camera broke and I have not been able to replace it yet. Until I can replace it I will be updating everything on this website and getting  all the pictures, etc added to their appropriate pages.
