What is the saying? "One swallow doesn't make a summer". Yesterday at the Northboro reserve at Shoal bay there were quite a few welcome swallows although it was a cold day but the sun was shining.
These birds were catching insects above the freshwater area at the head of the Northboro mangrove inlet. The pipe crossing this area is covered in spider webs. A good place for spiders to catch insects too.
This is a great place to watch eels. Only caught a glimpse of one today. That appeared when a small boy with his mother threw in some bread for the ducks.
