Take 12 photos on the 12th of the month showing your day. This is my day on 12th November 2012.

It is a Monday and the day started out grey and cloudy but soon turned into a lovely spring day with temperatures around 17C. I was at home all day.

About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook

The Apartment complex next door

Correls on tree


Without much notice and with a minimum of fuss there is a high-rise apartment complex developing next door to where I live on Hindmarsh Island.

A couple of years ago there was only one pair of residents – Black Ravens (or commonly called Black Crows) and they had what I thought was the penthouse, they went about their business without much fuss or bother and with only a little bit of noise from their children. Then about 2 years ago a new set of residents – White-faced Herons who moved in on a lower level and they were very peaceful neighbours. They were joined by another couple of White-faced Herons who set up house just across the way from the first couple.

In the last months a fourth set of residents – Goshawks have set up house in the complex and they have very noisy children. You can hear them from houses away. They went even higher that the Ravens and have the super penthouse location.

Yesterday a group of very noisy visitors descended upon the apartment complex and made more noise than all the residents combined. The Corellas perched at the top of the Norfolk Island Pine tree next door and not a peep was heard from any of the resident babies.
